The Greater Manchester Music Hub Singing Challenge


At The Greater Manchester Music Hub singing challenge in Salford,  a school from each local authority went to represent and we were the lucky representatives of Wigan.  It was a celebration of what would have been Queen Victorias 200th birthday.  The song was a celebration of what the Victorians did for us.  There were 300 children there on the day Singing in Peel Park, a park that was visited by 80,000 people when Victoria came to visit.  The event was broadcast on Salford City radio at 2.15pm in the afternoon.  The children had a great time engaged in activities in and around the park and museum, activities such as a sculpture challenge, finding hats in the art work and talks by local people about Victorian life in Manchester.
