Winter Variety Performance 2018

Elm Park Primary filled the audience, for the matinee Winter Variety Performance on Monday 26th November.  Performances from dance, drama and music entertained the crowd, enhanced by Christmas jokes told by our fabulous hosts Jasper and Daniel.

The evening performance was a sell out and all performances were outstanding.  Bands, dance companies, monologues and soloists took to the stage to entertain a very enthusiastic audience.

Thank you to all of the acts involved in both the matinee and evening performance.  Thanks to the staff involved, supportive parents and a special thanks goes to year 11 GCSE Music students, Connor, Ethan, Evan, James and Aaron, for assisting with equipment and technical prompts throughout both shows.
