A song for MGSO4 Festival

A brand new song was written for the 2016 MGSO4: Epsom & Ewell Arts Festival, by Epsom-based songwriter Ben Tompsett.

Built to Last, sung by 12-year-old Beth Keens, from Epsom Downs, is an uplifting, inspiring pop ballad with a great message and soaring chorus.

We invited schoolchildren across the borough to learn the song and be part of its debut performance, on Saturday 25th June 2016.

Anyone who wanted to learn the choir parts and enjoy the song could do so by watching the lyric videos on MGSO4 Festival's YouTube channel or downloading the lyrics and sheet music.

View photographs from the festival performance on our Gallery page - Derby Square, Saturday.

Packs were been sent out to participating schools throughout the borough so that they could teach the song to the children.
