Our 5-minute musical "Lewis Capaldi The Musical" (which we wrote, recorded & filmed entirely in lockdown) premiered on BBC Radio 1 to launch their 24-hour Lolathon for Comic Relief. It was voted best moment of the Lolathon, chosen as "Pick Of The Week" by Radio 4, replayed again and again on Radio 1 and has so far clocked up nearly 400,000 views across social media! Our YTC kids were so epic, Lewis Capaldi called it "Absolute Gold!". If you missed it, check it out HERE...

During lockdown we filmed a specially arranged version of "When A Rainbow Fills The Sky”, beautifully sung & signed in Makaton Sign Language by 66 YTC pupils & families aged 4- 54! Watch it HERE! The video has raised nearly £2000 for Bassetlaw Food Bank thanks to all who participated or donated. We’re so close to our target, so PLEASE visit our JustGiving Page and donate whatever you can so we can reach our goal and help us help others!
