The event, run by Portsmouth Music Hub, gives children from mainstream and special schools the chance to work together to share their passion for music, dancing and drama.

This year the children performed the familiar nativity story – but with a twist.

Not Such A Silent Night is the story of Lenny the lamb who runs away from his farm in Bethlehem.

Lenny soon realises that he’s made a terrible mistake and decides to return.

He’s met by Bramble the puppy and they follow the star home to Bethlehem, meeting a donkey, a cat, a camel, several sheep and finally a host of angels along the way.
