Woodcote Primary School


Young Voices event at the London O2 Arena

I am delighted to have the opportunity to take a choir from Woodcote Primary School to join the Young Voices event at the London O2 Arena in January 2015.


The event will take place on Friday January 30th 2015. We will travel down to the O2 by coach in the morning and have a rehearsal during the afternoon. In the evening there will be a concert which parents and friends are invited to attend. This is an amazing event – something that the children will remember for the rest of their lives.Initially we are offering this to years 5 & 6 pupils on a first come first served basis. It is a very late night and we are likely to be back at school for about 11.30pm.


If you would like to book a place for your child we would like to know by Friday at the latest. We require no money at this stage – just the expected number in our choir so that we can inform the 02. Could you please fill in the slip to also let us know if you do not want your child to take part, then we won’t need to call you on Friday to check!


Things you may wish to know now

  • Tickets for the children in the choir are free although we will have to meet the cost of the coach. Initial conversations with coach companies suggest this will be about £16 per pupil.
  • The children are required to wear a white t-shirt. Event specific t-shirts are available to buy – most children wear them but it is not compulsory. DVDs and t-shirts are only available to order through the school. The 02 would like one single order from us rather than many separate ones from families.
  • Tickets for the audience will be £22 each, t-shirts will be £10 and DVDs will be £15. None of these items are necessary for your child to take part. However, each child taking part will need a white t-shirt, a packed lunch, a packed tea and also a tin of food for a collection by FareShare (a charity supported by the O2.)


I know that all the children are excited about the event and would like to take part. Being part of a massed choir of thousands gives a very special feeling and will be an experience never to be forgotten.


Please fill in the slip below and return to the school office via the post box by Friday 19th September, if your child will be taking part. No payment is required at this stage. We need to pass this information on to the O2 as soon as possible. We will send out a further letter to those who are attending, regarding payment, merchandise and audience tickets etc.


We would also consider arranging a parents’ coach for the evening performance if this helps. We can discuss this at a later stage.

Kind regards,

Liz Hunt
