Roll up, roll up! As the Circus came to Westbourne.
Our summer term was brought to a close in true circus style when our Music Department produced a colourful attraction featuring musicians from both our Junior & Senior School. The programme was inspired by the 2017 film “The Greatest Showman”, which told the the story of P.T. Barnum’s creation of the Barnum and Bailey Circus and the lives of its star attractions.
Highlights included the Orchestra opening the concert with “Entry of the Gladiators”, the Junior Choir performing “Join the Circus” and the Year 5 Band ‘Girl Power 7’ performing the Katy Perry song “Roar”. All the performers joined forces for a dramatic finale featuring a medley of songs from “The Greatest Showman”.
Thank you to ringmasters Josephine Paul and Alfie Askham, all the children involved in this fantastic spectacle and to our Music Department staff, Mrs Pritchett, Mr Woodward and Mr Collis for their unconditional time and dedication in bringing the circus to town.
