Richard Blewitt, pictured above, far right, was a music teacher at Market Harborough’s Welland Park College 25 years ago.

Now, he is the assistant musical director for Market Harborough Choral Society. The picture was first published in the April 5, 1990, edition of the Mail and highlighted what was then a bi-annual event – the Harborough Schools Music Festival – which has since faded into history.
It featured nine town schools and some 300 pupils.
