Don't miss the broadcast of this year's CBeebies Proms concerts 'Off to the Moon' on CBeebies on Saturday 14 September at 9:30am. Members of Berkshire County Youth Choirs sang as part of the CBeebies Proms Children's Choir. We were hugely honoured that our choirs were invited to take part in what was a really fun concert experience and the students worked very hard to learn the music. We can't wait to see it on TV!
