Made in Roath pupils sing out for festival showcase.
Children from Roath Park Primary School, in Cardiff, belted out their own track entitled Together Together at a show celebrating the culmination of a weekend arts festival called Made in Roath.
The three-day festival included exhibitions, street art, workshops and performances, which all aimed to show off the creative talents of residents of Roath, Cardiff.
Teacher and songwriter Lou Noble helped youngsters to write the lyrics for a song inspired by the festival in a series of school workshops.
She said: "I tried to get them to think about the festival and what it was all about. They started scribbling down words and phrases and from there we managed to put together the song.
"They cottoned on to the fact that it was about strengthening the community and getting together so the song became Together Together.
"The whole ethos is that we don't all have a spotlight on us all the time so if there is something special, you really have to shout about it and make sure people take notice. Hopefully that's a message that will stay with the children."
Lou, who lives in Roath, runs song writing sessions for schoolchildren through her company The Source Workshops. For details, visit www.songwritingfromthesource.biz
