Around 30 schools from across the area are taking part in the annual extravaganza, to take place at Bournemouth's Pavilion Theatre on November 21 and 22.

One performance will feature youngsters from primary schools and the other pupils from secondary schools in the area.

The children gathered at Kingsleigh Primary School in Hadow Road, Bournemouth.
