Charity Accessible Arts and Media started its festive celebrations on a high note with a special Christmas concert in Pocklington.

Young people from the East Riding and York Inclusive Music Projects groups gathered at Woldgate College to perform a range of singing and signing songs and their own original pieces of music to a packed audience of family and friends. They were joined by Forgotten Voices community choir from Pocklington and everyone came together for a big, festive singing and signing finale, teaching the audience how to sing and sign ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’.

Rose Kent, Managing Director of Accessible Arts and Media, said: “What a great way to kick start our countdown to Christmas. We’re all very proud of our Inclusive Music Projects members, they’ve worked really hard this term and it was great to see all that hard work pay off with such a fantastic performance. Huge thanks to everyone who came and joined us in celebrating young local talent.”
