I was lucky enough to go to the Royal Albert Hall to perform with my choir. I got told it was going to be a long day and they weren't wrong. We left school at about 11:15 and got to the Royal Albert Hall at about 1ish. We had lunch as soon as we got there outside in Hyde Park by the big gold statue of Prince Albert.
Then we had to go into the Royal Albert Hall to put our things up. We had to walk up so many stairs and it hurt my legs after a while. I think they called it the gallery where it was right at the top. Once we were there we had a little rest and looked over the side. It was so high up I felt a little bit sick!
Then we had to go all the way back down and find our seats ready for the rehearsal. Rehearsal took up until about 5 o'clock. Then we got were let out to enjoy our pizzas for tea, which the music teacher had ordered for us. We went back to where we sat and had lunch to eat the pizzas and all they all went as there were 25 of us kids eating them and three of the grown ups that were with us too.
Then it was back upstairs to put coats and bags back and go straight back downstairs ready for the concert. I was so nervous but I was with all my friends so it was okay. By this time I was very tired but I had so much fun doing it and at the end loads of balloons fell down from the ceiling. I loved it at first and I got myself a balloon but then they started popping the balloons and that scared me a little bit. I was brave as I really wanted one and then I saw mummy and daddy. Daddy drove to the Royal Albert Hall so we got in the car and went home but we did go via McDonald's so I got a cheeky Happy Meal, chicken nuggets of course. I think I fell asleep in the car after that for about 10 minutes. I don't really remember much after that but mummy said we got home at midnight and I still had to go to school the next day for 8.25am.
I really enjoyed it and would love to do it again, so hopefully in two years' time I can.
