A music festival will bring more than 2,000 children together in North Finchley.

The Barnet Education Arts Trust (BEAT) event is now in its 14th year and will run for seven days at the Artsdepot, in Nether Street.

Children from 73 schools across the borough will sing a range of songs from Australia, Nigeria and Africa.

Lynn Holman-Fox, Chief Executive of BEAT, says: “This is a wonderful opportunity for children and teachers to share traditional music, whilst learning about and appreciating music from other cultures.

“It’s a concert not to be missed if you have yet to experience the impact of a massed choir in full flow.”

In addition, all schools will perform their own item of music, reflecting the diversity, variety and excellence of music in Barnet schools.

Performances will be held from June 16 to 19, and June 23 to 25, from 7pm.
