Arts Festival 2017

The Creative Arts department are busy preparing for the annual Arts Festival week which runs from Monday 27th February to Friday 3rd March. Throughout the week, each department will be putting on a wide variety of workshops, activities and events focussed on themes such as music, dance and art.

A reminder that the Semi Final nights during Arts Festival week, kicks off with Music on Monday 27th February, and Drama and Dance on Wednesday 1st March.

Tickets for both Semi-final nights will cost £6 for adults and £4 for concessions (primary age and under). The tickets will be available to purchase from the Finance Office from Monday 27th February and will also be available to buy at the door on both nights.

Arts Festival culminates in the highly anticipated Finals Night on Friday 3rd March from 7pm which will see students from all year groups take to the stage! Tickets for the Finals Night will cost £11 and will be available for purchase from the finance office. Please note, tickets for Finals Night will not be available to purchase at the door on the night.

As the students will not know who has made it through to the Final until after the Semi-Finals nights, half of the Finals Night tickets will be released on Monday 27th February, and then paused on the morning of Wednesday 1st March. The tickets will then be re-released on Thursday morning after all the Semi-final nights have been completed and the finalists announced.

Please note, payments are to be made by cheque or cash and all tickets are non-refundable. If you would like any further information on how to purchase tickets, please contact Mrs McLaughlin.
