IMG 8299

The West Buckland Prep School Chamber Choir have reached the final of BBC Radio Devon’s Star for Christmas choral competition for the third year in a row with their rendition of Somewhere Only We Know, by Keene, which was covered by Lily Allen for the John Lewis Christmas advert a few years ago.

Featuring fantastic solos from Megan Brown (Prep 6) and Mischa Hanson (Prep 5), the choir recorded their rendition last week, when a team from BBC Radio Devon came to the school and, along with the other finalists, their song will be played every morning on Simon Bates’ morning show at around 8.30am.

The competition, to find the best Primary School Choir in Devon, will be open to a public vote, starting next Monday 28th November, from 6am and finishing on Thursday 1st December at 4pm.  The winning choir will be invited to sing live in the BBC studios in Plymouth.

The Prep School is hoping that the West Buckland community will get behind their entry and vote for them by visiting http://bbc.in/2gjCPgN
