The event, called Evolve, will see Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) showcase the arts as children perform a piece of their choice.

Pupils from Ely College, Downham Feoffees Primary Academy and Lantern Primary School will join others from across East Anglia.

The event will bring to life the vision of the CMAT's founder, the late Martin Bacon.

Martin aspired to bring all the schools together each year to celebrate excellence and drive improvements in arts provisions across Cambridgeshire.
