This medley features excerpts from four original songs created by primary schools in Newham: Sparks in the Dark, Welcome to the Royal Docks, More to the River Than Meets the Eye and a brand new song by St Michael’s.

The lyrics reflect on the heritage of Newham from the harsh conditions experienced by dock workers to the building the Olympic park and even shopping at Westfield.
