HowardFest17 - Saturday 24 June 2017

As you may have read a couple of weeks ago, this summer will see HowardFest17 – an outdoor musical ‘extravaganza’ (my all-purpose and perhaps somewhat over-used word to glamourise any Friends event).  It will be held on Saturday 24 June at the school. The event is being run in collaboration with the school’s Music Department who will showcase a variety of talented students in the afternoon before our very-own Glastonbury takes place in the evening.

Obviously we’re not expecting any swamp-like conditions the Somerset festival is famed for and have already forecast it will be a beautiful long warm summer evening (based on hope more than anything remotely meteorological). The line-up is a closely guarded secret (no prizes for guessing why) and Richard, Sean and Jack are working out how to power the event without blowing up the generator house and possibly the Lower School ….. Please save the date and we’ll provide more info in the next few weeks.
