RWB Arts Festival Concert Features Young Stars

The Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival attracted a huge amount of talent this year and the autumn concert, With A Song In My Heart, celebrates this.

Tilly Wale, Harry Apps and Alexander Harris are the young stars of this year’s autumn festival concert.

Alexander has just been accepted into the National Youth Orchestra, beginning in mid-December. Tilly has had success in both the Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival and the Swindon Music Festival as well as securing the Catherine Lamber UK Junior Recital Prize and a place at the Two Moors Young Musicians Platform. She is a member of the National Youth Choir and is a sought after soloist with the Swindon Male Voice Choir and the Thamesdown Ladies Choir.

Harry too is studying for his A-levels at Royal Wootton Bassett Academy where he is the lead singer of the Swing Band. The singer took the leading role in the MJ-UK Production of The Clockmaker’s Daughter, The Scarecrow in Stage Smart’s The Wizard of Oz, and this year he was Jack in Theatre Ink’s version of Into The Woods, and Hanschen in Barn Youth Theatre’s Spring Awakening.
