Soham Village College's annual carol service at Ely Cathedral


The talented pupils of Soham Village College put on another show-stopping performance at Ely Cathedral on Thursday night.

Returning for their 14th year, pupils performed a programme of songs which looked back at their last year at school, with many numbers supported by the school’s young musicians.

There were solos from Rebecca Storey, Tilly Lewis and Megan Simpson and group numbers recalling the school’s trip to South Africa.

The performance was once again directed by teacher Stephen Kenna and watched by hundreds of family and friends, who packed in under the cathedral’s Octagon Tower.

Former Coronation Street and Hollyoaks actor Bill Ilkley, who helped organise the trip to South Africa, also attended.
