Supporting BBC CIN Appeal

Nottingham Music Service is proud to have supported the BBC Children in Need Appeal this year. Nottingham city was one of the locations for the Children’s Choir for 2017 and we were thrilled to be a part of it. A record £50 million was raised on the night for the Children in Need Appeal, with East Midlands contributing £1.8 million to the total!


Over 200 pupils from nine schools across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire took part in the performance, which was conducted by our very own singing specialist Sara King. The performance, which took place on November 17, 2017 at the beautiful Albert Hall, was viewed by over 7.4 million people that night.

The Nottingham/shire school choirs sang a beautiful jazz rendition of Over the Rainbow in unison with children from nine other UK locations including: Pacific Quay in Glasgow, Ulster Folk and Transport Museum just outside of Belfast, Broadcasting House in Cardiff, the Discovery Museum in Newcastle, Piece Hall in Halifax, the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, the Aerospace Museum in Bristol, Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools in Newbury, and Elstree Studios in London.
