STAMFORD Park will be alive with the sound of music tomorrow (Tuesday 23 May) when 200 Tameside school children will take part in a singing challenge.

Pupils from Dowson and Millbrook primary schools will gather at the flagship Stalybridge park at  2.15pm to perform ‘Go to the Park’ live.

They will be uniting in song with schools from around Greater Manchester in a song written by Out of the Ark Music which celebrate parks and open spaces.  The song encourages children to think about all the different fun activities they can participate in at the park, as well as reminding them of the changing seasons and of the wildlife they may see there.

The event is being supported by Tameside Music Service, which provides a range of music opportunities for children and young people in educational settings.

Lead Vocal Tutor Caroline Ratcliff said: “We are proud to be a part of an annual event which champions the health benefits of singing as well as a strong sense of community. We are looking forward to lifting the spirits and hearts of everyone within earshot of the park – it will also be an amazing experience for the children involved.”
