The school choir entertained guests while some students performed solos, such as Georgina Tate who sang Smile, and Daniel Elsley, who gave a rendition of Mr Bonjangles.

Blue Skies Big Band took over for the second half of the event, singing classics such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and In the Mood.

Julia Lysons, music teacher at Forest Hall, said: "It was a fantastic night that raised £230 to be split between Help for Heroes and our school production of Sister Act."
