Camden schools’ summer concert raises money for Lauderdale House
Schoolchildren showcased their musical talents in a fundraising concert for a historic Highgate house.
Pupils at all-girls Parliment Hill and all-boys William Ellis schools in Highgate Road, near Parliament Hill Fields, performed a summer concert at Lauderdale House in Highgate Hill.
All forms of music were represented, with performances from a traditional string quartet, a brass band and a pop choir.
Guests enjoyed Pimms and strawberries in the grounds of Waterlow Park before enjoying the concert in the house’s lower gallery.
The performance was to raise money for Lauderdale House, which is due to undergo an extensive refurbishment in the next year.
