Dallimore pupils celebrate Chinese New Year

Wow – the children at Dallimore Junior School performing in Ilkeston town centre celebrating the Year of the Monkey. It looks very exciting and colourful.

Big Kirk Hallam provided funding for pupils at Dallimore to work with Ling Peng, a classically trained musician and storyteller, learning stories, songs, instruments and dance over 4 sessions and culminating in a performance in Ilkeston at the Chinese New Year celebrations on 13 February.

Frances Watt, Arts Development Officer at Erewash Borough Council, said “The children really enjoyed themselves! Thank you so much for supporting that activity and opportunity for them.”
