The pupils gathered for the 42nd annual Music Association of Woodspring Schools Concert and this year’s theme was songs and music related to books and literature.

A choir of more than 350 children performed on the day, supported by dancers and three instrumental groups – a string orchestra, a wind band and guitar ensemble.

Schools from Clevedon, Backwell, Portishead, Nailsea, Pill, Claverham, Long Ashton and Portbury took part on April 3.
