This yearly event took place on the 15th of February 2019. The South Downs Hall was packed! Full of excited seniors, crying out with enormous enthusiasm as the brilliant bands took to the stage and left, showered with applause.
During the vibrant afternoon senior forms 1-5 gathered to attend what seemed one of the most enjoyable events of the year. Upper Juniors attended as news reporters for their English topic linked to Newspaper report writing. The bands were amazing! The songs were catchy and perfectly picked, The South Downs Hall isn’t an easy place to perform but they sounded awesome!
All of the teachers enjoyed the occasion massively, they were laughing, cheering and just having a great time! Just being there made you smile like you were at a real concert. The crowd was very pleased when the winners were announced – BLACKOUT!!! (Although our favourite band was 2 shoes and a Pineapple) all of the other bands pleased the crowds. Mr Spawforth was overheard saying, “The band Spawforth Extreme are my favourite – outstanding band name!”
It was amazing to attend, and I expect all of Upper Juniors are really looking forward to coming next year – they may even be performing in a band themselves.
A huge thank you to all of the music department for putting together this amazing event!
