A junior choir from India were thrilled to the UK, entertaining music lovers and enjoying the sites of London.
The Aroha Junior Choir from Shillong travelled to Wales for the 71st Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod Competition but made a pit stop to the Upminster Methodist Church, Hall Lane, to perform at the sixth JMS Music Gala.
Money raised from the concert went towards the choir spending a day in central London as well as new flooring which is needed at the church.
During their trip in London, the choir went to see Phantom of the Opera at the West End.
Choir member Hasselberge said: “This trip means everything to us. A dream is unfolding into reality.”
Joanna Skillett, who organised the event as well as the day out, said: “The concert was fantastic, the church was packed and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
“I’m so happy that the choir was able to experience some of London while they were here.”
