Last week, more than 1,200 pupils from across 14 local primary schools took part in the Peterborough Sings! Big Band Singing Days at the Broadway Theatre.

During two days full of fun and enjoyment, the pupils worked on a repertoire to give them an insight into the world of big band swing, including learning songs from Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.
