Pupils and teachers at The Dolphin School on Cheltenham Road were delighted to be chosen to represent the schools in Bristol and for their choir to perform in the Cabot Circus Lights Switch On and at the launch of the Christmas Markets in Broadmead. 

Teacher Miss Robinson said: “Christmas came early at The Dolphin School - quite literally when our newly formed choir began rehearsing some Christmas classics in October! 

“The light switch-on soon came round fast, we walked down from school excitedly, and begun our performance singing 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' in front of the shoppers of The Galleries Shopping Centre. 

“From there we followed the Snow Queen on a procession lit up by colourful umbrellas, stopping at the centre of Broadmead, where we sung 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas' to the shoppers enjoying a hot cup of mulled wine and hot chocolate in the Christmas markets. 

“On went the Snow Queen and so did we! Round towards Cabot we stopped once more to sing 'I wish it could be Christmas Every Day' to the distant sounds of the crowds awaiting us at the main light switch on.”

The crowds were cheering as the children followed the snow queen into Cabot. They quickly took their places on the stage and performed their songs once more.

Their magical debut performance as The Dolphin School Choir ended with bang when Fitzroy pushed the plunger and officially turned on the Christmas lights in Cabot Circus with fireworks, confetti and a lot of very excited Dolphin children.
