School children celebrate Norman Cornish exhibition with a Music Day

One hundred and thirty one youngsters from five Teesdale Primary Schools have taken part in a day of musical celebration at The Bowes Museum.

The children from Butterknowle, Cockfield, Evenwood, Ramshaw and Woodland visited Norman Cornish: The Definitive Collection and worked with different specialist artists, partially funded by Arts Council England, to produce, what will become, a soundscape for the exhibition.

They then performed their work in the Blue Picture Gallery for visitors to enjoy.

The day also marked the beginning of a wider community project funded by Teesdale Area Action Partnership and Northern Heartlands.
