STUDENTS donned festive hats when they visited men and women at residential home in Downend and entertained them with songs from their hit musical We Will Rock You.

Throwing in some Christmas tunes, the 13 students from Mangotsfield School went along to Avonmere in Badminton Road and sang their hearts out.

The students were just a few from the large cast which took to the stage at the school from November 21-23 to perform the rock musical, which is based around the songs of the band Queen.

Becky Slade, who directed the musical, said: "The students performed eight songs from the musical and then sang some Christmas songs.

"The residents joined in and it was a great party atmosphere. We had really lovely comments from residents and have been asked to keep in touch.

"We will definitely be strengthening the link with that particular care home."
