Lucky students meet Michael Morpurgo at Press Night!

Wow! Our lucky students were invited to an incredible Press Night at Chichester Festival Theatre's intimate Minerva Theatre to see the stunning 'The Butterfly Lion' directed by Dale Rooks, from the novel by famous children's author Michael Morpurgo.

The show was absolutely outstanding and combined entrancing visual effects with mesmerising puppetry, that looked so life like, we just couldn't believe our eyes! The Press Night was packed with well known journalists, actors and directors and most amazing of all was that our boys actually met Michael Morpurgo himself, who posed with the boys and even signed a few programmes! An opportunity of a life time!

An amazing an unforgettable theatre experience in conjunction with LEAP at Chichester Festival Theatre; The Learning, Education and Participation (LEAP) Department creates a year-round programme of practical workshops, talks, tours, performances and much more. With opportunities for all ages and abilities they aim to excite and inspire every person that engages with them.

Thank you Mrs Joan Bull for co-ordinating this evening trip.
