More than 400 primary school students showcased their musical talent in the Pembrokeshire Music Service Valero Primary Music Festival last weekend.

The event was held at Ysgol Caer Elen by Pembrokeshire Music Service, providing a platform for children across the county.

This year's festival highlighted a variety of musical ensembles.

Philippa Roberts, head of Pembrokeshire Music Service, applauded the collective performance, noting the implementation of the New Music Plan for Wales had created more growth opportunities for their students.

"Congratulations to each participant for their commendable efforts," she said.

The event's overall winner was young violinist, Alice Thomas, an eight-year-old from St Oswalds School.

Alice enthralled the audience with her rendition of Galop by Charles Bohm.
