This year’s Gig in the Grounds was a huge success! Thank you to all the parents, children and staff who made this event such a fun, enjoyable day! We were so proud of all of our children who performed, as they really did show off their wonderful talent!
A special thanks to James Lyons for giving up his whole afternoon to run ‘Beat Box’ workshops, perform as a solo act and also as local band ‘Lyons and La Zel.’ Local band ‘The Rob Mather Band’ closed the show with a sensational performance of Uptown Funk, supported by our brass children and singers from Glee and Singing Leaders. Keeping us entertained throughout the day, were bands from Hugh Baird College and Broadgreen High School and we were so impressed with how professional they sounded! As always, Linda Langford and Louise Hough ensured our violins and brass were top notch, so thank you to them too!
We were also very lucky to have the whole day on the main stage pulled together by our own parents Tom Calderbank and Phina Oruche Mariani. They kept us entertained during the intervals and really added something special!
