P7 Success at Horrid Haddington

Huge Congratulations to King’s Meadow Primary School’s P7 classes who sang brilliantly at the Horrid Haddington Event on Friday. They drew a big crowd at the John Gray Centre and entertained everyone with their creative, informative and witty songs. Thank you to Councillor John McMillan for kicking things off and Ruth Fyfe for organising the event. Also thanks to Iain Bruce and Gica Loening from ELC Art’s Service /  YMI for providing the technical support!

Special thanks to Alan Penman for running the Song Writing Project at King’s Meadow.

Below are some photos and recordings of their songs.
