College’s First-Ever Outdoor Christmas Concert Produces Festive Magic

15 December 2020

Students produced a range of memorable festive performances on Monday evening, as the school hosted its first-ever outdoor Christmas concert, in line with national COVID-19 guidelines.

Musicians, singers, and dancers – including Fab-YULE-us, Sleigh What?, #Elf-Y!, The Sugar Plum Fairies, The Candy Canes, The Saracens, The Year 7 Dancers, and The Brass Band – performed in outdoor stations around the school, as spectators revelled in the walk-through winter wonderland created by students and staff.

Each group of students completed six performances to entertain the 180+ spectators, who had booked tickets in their household bubbles, with Head Boy and Head Girl, Daniel and Lucy, beginning each display with an introduction talk. Attendees were then escorted around the building by Year 11 Prefects, who were dressed in their festive elf outfits!

The evening also played a big part in raising money for the school’s chosen charity this year, with all proceeds from the purchases of refreshments going towards YoungMinds UK, a charity that strives to support the mental health of young people.
