THE Janice Thompson Performance Trust is offering scholarship places for youngsters who enjoy singing.

Places are available for nine to 13-year-olds who are eligible for free school meals.

Taster sessions will take place from 5.30pm at Haydonleigh Primary School on January 8 and Lydiard Park Academy on January 11.

The JTP Trust are able to offer scholarship places as a result of their sell-out performances of Swindon: The Opera last year.

Janice Thompson, director of the JTP Trust, said: “After winning the Big Lottery Grant, the trustees agreed they would like to continue to offer singing opportunities to local children after the project was complete.”
