Students to perform extracts from show

legionnews

Our Upper School students will be performing extracts from The Wind Road Boys at The Royal British Legion Club in Ferryhill on Thursday 25th October. We were asked if we could present an informal sharing of work after an ex-miner at the club was unable to attend the Sunderland Empire performance and really wanted to see it. Once again our students are delighted to be given the opportunity to perform for the community.
