Starlight Starbright with Outstanding Education Solutions




After last years success, Starlight Starbright is back for 2019 in association with our friends at Outstanding Education solutions.


Sunshine Radio will be providing the entertainment again this year for the Hereford Christmas Light switch on and we're inviting 2 lucky schools to perform a Christmas song or two on the night! 


So we're calling all schools across our broadcast region to put together a choir of children (it can be mixed age and mixed classes) to learn a song with a Christmas theme and enter them on the form below. We’ll then come and record your entry to go into the finals via our website and social media platforms and on-air (parental clearance permitting of course).


The top 6 song finalists will then go to the vote, and the best 2 schools will receive a £200 cash prize each and perform on stage in front of over 3000 people in Hereford High Town. Can you beat Weobley High Schools entry from last year? Hear it below:



Let’s make your school shine in ‘Star Light Star Bright’ with a stage performance in High Town Hereford on November the 17th in front of the children’s proud parents and a potential audience of 3000 people. To get your school singing, please fill in the form below:
