The 'T' Festival




Performances


Following on from the success of previous Rock and Pop concerts held at Talbot Heath, the Rothesay Road school organised a fundraising concert at the Shelley Theatre in Boscombe last week. Featuring a superb line up of talent from the Talbot Heath senior pupils and staff the ‘T’ Festival raised over £700 towards the refurbishment of the Shelley Theatre. The programme included a varied mix of popular numbers from artists such as Adele, Jesse J and Lady G-Ga, as well as classics from Blonde, Kings of Leon and The Clash. They were performed by pupils as young as 12 up to 18 years old and the line-up also featured the now infamous staff band ‘The Talbot Heathens’! It was especially inspiring to enjoy the talents of the peripatetic music staff who performed two numbers and featured a special performance by percussion teacher Mr Dan Priest on the drums; he is leaving TH after 18 years of teaching at the school.

The school is keen to support the restoration programme of this delightful theatre and previously held its fundraising production of Frankenstein there in March 2014. Mrs Holloway, who sang Joni Mitchell’s ‘Both Sides Now’ (as well as playing the keyboards with the Heathens) said it had been a tremendous evening and that she received a very positive response from members of the public in the audience, adding ‘Rock on TH!’
