THE final rehearsals have been held ahead of student charity concert tomorrow in Whetstone.

The show will be held at the iBar, in High Road, from 1pm in aid of this year's Children in Need appeal.

About 50 students from Al Pascal music will be performing live on stage throughout the afternoon with all the proceeds from the day going to charity.

Alex Paschali, founder of the music school, said: “The kids love doing something for charity.

“The idea was that it was kids playing for kids, and it is all for a great cause, so if we can give something back it will be brilliant.

“To have this many children come in and put this much effort into the event is fantastic.”

All of the performers are from the North London area, and Mr Paschali said it was a great opportunity for them to experience a real live music venue.

He said: “Their level of musicianship has shot up.

“They get such a buzz from being on stage and the iBbar is a brilliant set up for them.”

Along with the showcase of musical talent, the fundraiser will also feature face painting, an auction, a magician, tuck shop and Pudsey the bear.

Compère for the day will be TV presenter Nigel Clarke, and he said: “It will be a really inspiring event and I’m convinced we will be able to raise a substantial amount for such a worthy cause.”

The family event is on from 1pm and will run until about 6pm. Entry is £5, with children under five getting in for free. All the money raised from the day will go to Children in Need appeal.
