Youngsters from Little Voices, a fast-growing performing arts school in Fenham are tuning up for a special festive appearance at St James’ Park in Newcastle this weekend.
St James’ Park Festive Fayre takes place at the home of Newcastle United Football Club on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November (10am – 5pm) and pupils from Little Voices, the award-winning performing arts school franchise based in Fenham, will sing Christmas songs to raise money for Newcastle West End Foodbank.
Newcastle West End Foodbank first opened back in 2013, providing invaluable support to those living in poverty within the region, and has since grown to be the largest Foodbank in the UK. The Foodbank provided food parcels for in excess of 40,000 people in Newcastle last year.
Jenni Evans, principal at Little Voices Newcastle, said:
“The children are very excited to be performing at such a great event and hope to raise as much money as they can. We are proud to have been invited to perform and it gives our pupils a good audience to showcase their talents to, as well as helping the community this Christmas.”
The weekend also hosts an array of local traders and a variety of traditional Christmas food and drink.
Tickets for the St James’ Park Festive Fayre are £3 per person when purchased in advance or £5 on the door.
Little Voices in Newcastle provides singing and drama lessons in small groups for boys and girls aged 4-18. Pupils gain official qualifications though LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art).
The business was established by professional opera singer Jane Maudsley in 2007.
Little Voices now has a franchise network of 72 centres operated by 25 individual franchisees who often have a background in professional teaching, acting or singing.
The business is targeting 60 franchisees before the end of 2020 and is also planning international expansion into the USA market.
