Carols rang out of the parish church as Sidmouth College brought the community together for its annual festive concert.
Students had been hard at work rehearsing for the service last Wednesday, to perform to a packed congregation.
Festive favourites were sang in fine voice by all those in attendance, followed by performances by the student and staff choir.
Soloist singers Marla Roper-Kum and Nyah Austin performed beautiful renditions of ‘Noel’ and ‘Mary did you Know’
Year 7 students read ‘Christingles’ whilst holding the Christingles they had made in college this week, with staff and students also reading Christmas messages during the evening.
