Summer Arts Festival

Westholme School

Dear Westholme Family,

We hope you have enjoyed a lovely summer break and are very much looking forward to returning to school next Monday. I am writing to let you know that Charity Summer Arts Festival scheduled for the 11 September 2021 will no longer take place as planned.

We feel we have made the right decision due to the ongoing extensive ground work taking place at Wilmar Lodge, making it a less than ideal setting for an outdoor festival in the first week of term.

However, we will be showcasing many of the drama and musical items during our spectacular Open Evening on Thursday 7 October, between 6pm and 9pm. You will be able to delight in our choirs, swing band, instrumental artists, actors and dancers on this occasion. I want to emphasise that your child’s hard work and dedication has not been in vain and their talents will also be shown in other exciting events later in the academic year; such as the Performing Arts Evening in the Spring Term.

We are very much hoping that this year, our extensive co-curricular programme will be up and running again and that Covid-19 restrictions will not prevent us from delivering a year of exciting performing arts. We are extremely excited to be resuming a full programme. More details of future performances will follow, but for now, please put Thursday 7 October into your diaries and we look forward to welcoming current parents to our annual Open Evening between 6pm and 9pm.

Yours sincerely

Miss C Roberts

Head of Drama
