Millbrook Academy will be holding an Arts Festival from Tuesday 25 to Friday 28 June, which will involve not only Millbrook Academy students, but students from local primary schools. The Arts Festival will be packed with music, drama and art, and will involve both day time and evening events.

On Tuesday 25 June, students from local primary schools will join us for a competitive arts festival, where they will show off their instrumental, singing and poetry reading skills, as well as competing in the “variety” class.

On Wednesday 26 June, we will again be joined by local primaries, and students will work with Key Stage 3 Gifted and Talented Music students to put together a performance of a musical play – “Of Mice and Mozart” which uses Mozart’s most famous tunes, along with witty lyrics, to tell the story of his life. On the evening on Wednesday 26 June, our Arts Award students will perform plays they have been working on this term – the Bronze Group will perform “Arson About”, a play about three children who visit their school one evening to investigate rumours of arson, with devastating consequences, and the Silver Group will perform “We Lost Ella”, which they have adapted from another play. Ella is a young girl who feels that no one notices her, so one day, she decides she will just disappear. “We Lost Ella” shows how this affects her family and friends. These will be performed in The Mill, beginning at 7pm. Tickets are £1 and will be available on the door.

On Thursday 27 June, students from Cooper’s Edge Primary School and Brockworth Primary Academy will join us for an afternoon performance of “Arson About, and then on Friday 28, Year 8 and 9 students will get the chance to watch “We Lost Ella”. On the evening on Friday 28 June, there will be a musical evening in The Mill, which will involve a variety of performances from Millbrook Academy students. This event starts at 7pm and tickets will be available on the door for £1.

Additionally, there will be an art exhibition in the Science Foyer all week.

We are hoping that this will become an annual event, and are looking forward to seeing what our talented performers and artists have been doing.
