Starting Monday 21 June, we are delighted to bring you one of our premier events of the academic year – the Northampton High School Arts Festival.
In an event that spans the course of a week, we delight in showcasing the world of the Arts at the High School. Our students all across the school have completed some excellent work this year, and we can’t wait to share with you what they have produced in the workshops, on the stage, in the kitchen, and everything in between.
In a ‘normal’ year, like in 2019, we host lots of exciting internal events during the week, such as author visits, opera vocal masterclasses, and interactive workshops, but unfortunately, this has not been possible this year due to current restrictions. However, in true performance fashion, the show must go on and we are pleased to share with you our plans for this year’s Virtual Arts Festival.
On each day of the week, we will be focusing on a different area of the Arts, and we will share examples of exemplary work in that particular field on our social media channels throughout the day. We will also be sharing the latest editions of our High Arts and Portfolio publications, ahead of the showcase event of the week, or Virtual Arts Invitational, taking place on Friday.
Normally an ‘in person’ event, the Invitational will delve into the Creative Arts world and will look in depth at the outstanding work our students have completed over the last year. We will be sharing pieces of drama, wonderful artwork, culinary excellence, passionate monologues, and lots more in a feature-length video that will be broadcast on YouTube at 7pm on Friday 25 June (link to follow).
We can’t wait to bring the beginning of the Festival to you on Monday, and we hope you enjoy this showcase!
