Hundreds of children to sing Carols at NNUH

Over the next two weeks six schools and over 200 children will be coming to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) to sing carols to staff and patients.

Kicking off this fortnight of music will be 90 pupils from Mile Cross Primary School who will be performing on Monday 10th December at 11am in the West Atrium.

Jonty Tan, Head of Music from Mile Cross Primary School said “This is a great opportunity for us to be able to perform as a whole Choir. With nearly 100 children in our Senior Choir, most of the venues we love to perform in can only hold a fraction of the children! This is the first in line of eight concerts our Senior Choir will be doing this Christmas and we consider it a real privilege to be a part of Christmas at the Hospital.”

The other performances over the fortnight will be on:

  • Tuesday 11th December at 10.30am in the West Atrium – St Johns Catholic School
  • Friday 14th December at 12.30pm in the Deli-Food-2-Go where Sprowston Junior School will perform at the annual NNUH Volunteers Christmas Party
  • Tuesday 18th December at 2.00pm in West Atrium – Freethorpe Community School
  • Wednesday 19th December at 11.00am in the West Atrium Buxton Primary School and also on this day Queens Hill Primary will be performing at 2.00pm

Emma Jarvis, Hospital Arts Co-ordinator who has organised these performances said: “The aim of these concerts is to lift the spirits of our patients who are in hospital and make their stay a little bit more bearable, especially at this time of year. We are really grateful that so many schools are so keen to come along and sing to our patients, staff and visitors.”
