Performing Arts trip to LondonDate Posted: 10/03/2015 | Posted In: College News, Student News
On Wednesday the 4th of March the Performing Arts department took 18 of our students to London for a three day residential visit.
On the first evening we visited Cambridge Theatre to watch the award winning ‘Matilda’, where we were wowed by the hugely talented young cast, enjoyable songs and stunning set. On Thursday evening we watched ‘Billy Elliott’, which in addition to it’s raucous humour has an emotive, heartwarming edge, and of course some very impressive dancing! Before leaving on the Friday we visited the Harry Potter studios, where the true fans even dressed up for the occasion!
In between these scheduled visits we even had time for some shopping in Camden Markets and Oxford Road, and several students visited Buckingham Palace, Baker Street and The British Museum. Additionally, some of our A2 Drama students visited The Globe, in preparation for the Shakespeare section of their summer exam. Overall, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and we are very grateful that we have such lovely, fun, well behaved students!
