The Discovery Festival
The Discovery Festival, 1 - 7 July 2018
Warwick School is proud to be running its first ever Arts Festival this summer. The title for the first year is aptly ‘Discovery’, encompassing that unmistakeable spirit of adventure or the itch to try something new.
By day, the students will enjoy sessions with professional artists and performers. By night, the campus will be open to a wider audience with performances and events hosted in and around our wonderful venues. Warwick School proudly boasts two Performing Arts venues, The Bridge House Theatre and Warwick Hall.
The programme of events is wide and varied from dance workshops to a community sing of Mozart’s Requiem. A very exciting element of the programme is the ‘Before the Fringe’, where audiences have a chance to see four productions that are on their way to the Edinburgh Festival.
We are also delighted to be hosting TV - featured comedian Tom Stade, previewing his new show, providing top quality stand-up comedy.
Art and sculpture features heavily in the programme with an intriguing art installation in progress. Walking through Warwick School grounds the strange site of a stranded boat, greets all who visit. Working with visiting artists, the boys will learn how to use willow as a sculpture medium and will create a Kraken (sea monster) sculpture to engulf the shipwrecked boat.
Warwick School’s own talents will form a key thread of the Festival with drama and music performances from pupils aged 7-18.
The week's events will finish with a big family day on Saturday 7 July which we hope will attract large number of people. Many of the events on this day are free of charge and include dance performances from world-renowned Motionhouse.
