ARUNDEL Castle will play host to a choir of more than 100 children as part of a special live performance for Children in Need.
It is the fifth time the televised fundraising appeal has put together children’s choirs from across the UK to perform during the broadcast.
The collaborative effort will see 1,000 children from six locations in the UK perform Miley Cyrus’s hit The Climb.
Made up of children from Arundel Cathedral Junior Choir and four primary schools from across West Sussex, the Arundel Castle choir also has six children who receive support from projects funded by BBC Children in Need – The Brain Tumour Charity and Rowan’s Hospice.
Children in Need currently funds nine projects across West Sussex to the tune of more than £500,000.
Taking place on Friday, November 13, this year’s appeal will be hosted by Sir Terry Wogan, Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton, Rochelle Humes and Nick Grimshaw.
Entertainment includes Sir Bruce Forsyth returning to Strictly Come Dancing alongside Tess Daly with a Call the Midwife twist. There will also be a whole host of chart topping live music from artists such as Ellie Goulding, Years and Years, Rod Stewart, Selena Gomez, and a duet from Shane Filan and Nadine Coyle.
David Ramsden, BBC Children in Need chief executive, said: “This is set to be an amazing night of entertainment that will make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.”
