Time: 09:00 - 15:30

A day of singing assemblies across schools in Coventry to mark the end of a week of exciting music events as part of the BBC Biggest Weekend Fringe

We are actively supporting and encouraging every school in Coventry to run a whole-school singing assembly on Friday 25th May, as part of a national singing celebration to finish the week. Whether it’s in your own school hall, with other local schools, or out in the community, it would be fantastic to get every child singing to take part in the BBC Biggest Weekend – what a perfect way to mark the year Coventry was chosen as the UK City of Culture!

For ideas and inspiration on getting your school involved visit http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04pc0j8

 Any school responses to the song “No Place Like…” can be uploaded to the BBC 10 Pieces website, to show the world how world how talented and creative your fantastic pupils can be!
