MORE than 250 young musicians will be performing at the world-famous Cavern Club at the end of this month.

Borough pupils will be taking to the stage of the Liverpool venue - where The Beatles cut their teeth.

The youngsters will travel up on November 30 and there will be two concerts over the course of the day.

For the afternoon performance, the stage will be given over to local schools - including Langley, Archbishop Grimshaw and Castle Bromwich Juniors.

The evening concert, which is ticket only, will feature musicians from some of Solihull Music Service’s most-respected bands.

A local charity, Solihull Young Musicians Support Association, is supporting the excursion.

It’s actually the second year running that pupils have travelled up to the Merseyside club and put on a performance.

Last year, Solihull Music Service teamed up with local schools to arrange a concert at the club.

The event was a roaring success - with many families going along to watch - and now the children and teenagers will be returning for an encore. It’s been a busy 12 months for Solihull Music Service - who have also performed at venues like Solihull Arts Complex and the NEC.
