Durham Cathedral played host to a musical extravaganza as hundreds of the region's children showcased their musical talent.
More than 250 children from Sunderland took part in a concert as part of the Cathedral's Music Outreach programme.
Among the performances was the famous story of the Lambton Worm - complete with 50 feet long worm designed by the children.
The concerts are designed to give the children the chance to learn musical skills, as well as to perform in such a historic setting.
