Children from primary schools around Sunderland are taking part in an outreach concert in Durham Cathedral where they will be singing the legendary Wearside song the Lambton Worm.
The children have not only learnt the words of the song, but also designed and made a worm costume that is up to fifty feet long.
The concert is one of three large school music outreach concerts a year performed at the Cathedral.
