The 2018 National Lottery Awards will be televised next Wednesday, September 26th, on BBC1 in the evening presented by Ore Oduba. One of the Awards, of course, will be the Education Category which was won by the ‘Armistice Cantata’ from our Golden-Oldies Charity. The programme is being recorded this week and Grenville will receive the award on the show with Claire Holcombe, who is the Head of Music at Thornhill Primary School. Claire was very closely involved in the whole project.
