This week marked the beginning of the meteorological spring, although you would not have thought it, given some of the weather that we have experienced during our first week back. This half term is an interesting one, as it is usually the shortest of the academic year, but there is a great deal us to fit in before we break up for Easter.
We begin with the return of our fantastic annual school production, which gets underway at the Gala Theatre in Durham this evening. This year, we are staging the 2018 revision of the iconic musical Anything Goes and you can still purchase limited tickets for tomorrow’s performances (2.30pm and 7.30pm) on the Gala Theatre website. We know that a tremendous amount of work has been put in by both the cast and crew and we sincerely hope they enjoy the experience of being back on stage. Break a leg!
