There were talented dancers, actors, musicians, singers and a monologue as we hosted our Summer Arts Festival on Wednesday. Pupils took to the stage where the audience was treated to some outstanding performances. “It’s the seventh time we have held the Summer Arts Evening at Priory and every year we are impressed with the range of talented pupils we have here,” said music teacher, Mr Taylor. “They never cease to surprise us. It’s great to watch how their talents have developed and how they are growing into such confident performers.” 

There were some very creative, individualistic performances where pupils arranged their own versions of existing material either as a soloist, a duet or a larger ensemble. Again Year 8, Phoebe W, performed a self-taught dance, Olivia B did a monologue, alongside multiple performers showcasing several segments from shows such as Six, Chicago and Little Shop of Horrors. We also bade a fond farewell to several members of Year 11 who been stalwarts of all our Creative Arts events over the past 5 years.

During the interval, Vice Principal Mrs Cowell, drew the 70th anniversary raffle and the winning tickets are listed at >   https://www.priory.lancs.sch.uk/fundraising-priory/70th-anniversary-raffle 

Well done to everyone involved; it was a magnificent evening.
