Kids rock Ebrington Square with mass performance of ‘Teenage Kicks’

Ebrington Square played host to school children and education groups from across the city and district as they gathered to sing one of the city’s most famous anthems. ‘Teenage Kicks’ boomed out across the Square as startled passers-by stopped to enjoy the young peoples’ performance, which will feature in Walled City Passion. 


Children from St Mary’s College, Foyle College, Thornhill College, Ebrington Primary School, Good Shepherd Primary, The Model, Longtower Primary, Gael Scoil Eadáin Mhóir, St Anne’s Primary, St Columb’s College and Playtrail made up the 700-strong choir. 

Festival organiser, Robert Miller, was in buoyant mood. “It’s great to see so many schools out and mixing together,” he said, “and they sounded fantastic. The city really earned its title of ‘City of Song’ today.”
