But instead of performing for the usual audience of parents and family members, the preschool displayed their talents to an audience of elderly people from the Armoral Hill Day Centre, a charity which combats loneliness in the elderly.

The children, aged two to four years-old, sang seven songs, all of which they had learned by heart.

Manager of Little Robins Pre-School Carrie Smith said: “Everyone clearly enjoyed the play and we are delighted to have been able to share some festive cheer and a mince pie with elderly residents from St Albans at this time of year.”

Little Robins Pre-School maintains a close relationship with Armoral Hill through frequent visits. This particular visit coincides with the 50th anniversary of the charity.
