Summer 2023 - Songs to learn
Harrogate and Ripon Rural Schools Charity Concert at the Royal Hall in Harrogate
We had such a lovely day and the children were all absolute superstars on the stage! This sounded AMAZING!
Oliver Taylor (in Owls class) has written a wonderful recount of the event which I'd like to share with you...
One afternoon, my friends and I went to the Royal Hall. It was Friday, we went by coach and I enjoyed it ALOT! On the stage I was a bit scared. I smiled at you. We sang 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' and 'Believe'. There were massive stage lights! The Royal Hall was beautiful. It was red, gold and many more. It was covered in lights.

Ripon Rural Schools Charity Concert - Further information March 2023
Dear Parents and Carers of Choir members,
Arrangements for the Charity Concert at the Royal Hall, Harrogate on Friday 24th March
We have arranged transport for the children to the Royal Hall for a rehearsal during the day. We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £5.00 payable by ParentPay to cover the cost of the coach to the Royal Hall. We will leave school at 1pm so will have lunch at school, as normal, before we leave. All the children will stay at the Royal Hall, where there will be an opportunity to eat a packed meal before the concert starts at 6.30pm.
The concert is scheduled to finish at 9pm and your child will need to be collected from the Royal Hall at this time.
We hope parents, friends and family will come and support the children, in what will be a memorable experience performing in the iconic Royal Hall. The concert will involve over 220 children from 12 rural schools, including Bishop Monkton. Tickets are now on sale: https://www.harrogatetheatre.co.uk/events/harrogate-and-ripon-rural-schools-charity-concert/
Children will need on the day:
All schools participating in the concert have been asked to put together a luxury type hamper to be raffled on the evening of the event. All profits from the concert will raise money for this year’s charity: ‘The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre – Harrogate Hospital’. Please could all members of choir donate something for the hamper - donations to be handed to Mrs Worthington before Monday 20th March.
Recording of the concert
The concert will be recorded and you have the opportunity to purchase the recording on a memory stick for £10 - see attached order form with details of how to order. Please contact school if you do not give consent for your child to be filmed.
Support at home
Our choir will be singing three songs as well as two combined choir pieces for the grand finale. Please could you encourage your child/children to practise the songs which can be found within the 'Choir' section on our school website and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your continued support.
