AN ADDITIONAL needs choir was invited to Chester Cathedral to take part in a service to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The choir, Beautiful Noise, is part of a local charity called Creating Adventures, which looks to support adults with additional needs.

Beautiful Noise was just one of four groups invited to perform at the service, alongside the Cathedral choir, a children's choir, and the Cheshire Constabulary brass band.

The group was presented with a Jubilee token medal by Lady Redmond, and were warmly welcomed by the clergy at the event.

Beautiful Noise was put forward for the event by Warrington Borough Council's cultural commissioning officer, Lynn Radcliffe.

Songs chosen by the choir for their performance included Bruno Mars' "Count on Me," The Greatest Showman's "A Million Dreams," and "Let it Be" by The Beatles.

The songs were chosen to reflect themes of friendships, hopes, and dreams.

Jenny Allcock, founding chief officer of Creating Adventures, said: "It's a real story of adults with autism and learning disabilities achieving their dreams and making their town extremely proud of them."
