The Easingwold Advertiser & Weekly News is a family-owned paper for Easingwold and the surrounding area

On Monday 3rd April, the school Easter holidays were kicked off in style with an uplifting movie musicals session. It took place as part of the Musical Bridges project, which aims to build bridges through song.

Previous sessions have included a raucous sea shanties afternoon, and a moving Ukrainian songs workshop.

This time, local singer and singing leader Jessa Liversidge recruited over 60 singers, with ages ranging from 18 months to 95 years. A fun time was had as the singers sang their hearts out and enjoyed the company of friends old and new.

The day started with a “kids only” session, where around 20 young people aged 3-15 enjoyed singing songs from Matilda, The Greatest Showman, Mary Poppins, and Oliver.

The youngsters hailed from York and Thirsk, as well as Easingwold and the surrounding villages. They made a beautiful sound together as well as having a few laughs.

It was great for the young people to have some attention on their own – and great for some of the parents to be able to go off and explore some of Easingwold’s fine coffee stops before coming to sing themselves.
