Before the workshop, pupils from Stamford Welland Academy, Bluecoat Primary School, St Gilbert's Primary School, Malcolm Sargent Primary School and St Augustine's Primary School rehearsed a number of songs including a David Bowie medley and hits by pop singer Dua Lipa.

Hayley coached the pupils on harmonies, timing and vocal technique as well as answering questions and giving an insight into her career.

Audrey Caldwell, performing arts curriculum director at the Meridian Trust, who played a key role in organising the event, said: "The Singsation workshop was a truly wonderful experience for all involved.
