Actors Amanda Holden and Harry Hadden-Paton signed autographs for youngsters following a special charity concert they all starred in - which will be broadcast by Classic FM on Christmas Eve.
The 7-11 year olds from Colvestone Primary School were accompanied by critically-acclaimed classical and jazz musician Joe Stilgoe on piano, as they opened the concert singing Once in Royal David’s City.
Mr Stilgoe, the son of entertainer Sir Richard Stilgoe and opera singer Annabel Hunt who began training in classical music at the age of five, visited the school in Colvestone Crescent, Dalston to pick out seven-year old Nova Glyn to sing the opening verse.
The concert in Holy Trinity Church in Sloane Street, Kensington was organised to raise funds for The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts, a charity founded by Prince Charles, to try and inspire children through the arts.
