Song and dance at art fair

PUPILS from all year groups at Mangotsfield School entertained visitors to the school’s Winter Festival and Arts Market.

Singers, musicians, actors and dancers form the secondary school took to the stage during the event on December 3, which featured a preview of the upcoming musical production of Roald Dahl classic Matilda.

The event also included a primary school art exhibition, Lego displays, activities and a huge range of craft stalls, from prints, card making and resin to woodwork, stained glass and jewellery.

A school spokesperson said: “The Winter Fair was a storming success and a fabulous community event.

“The day had many creative elements to recognise the wonderful opportunities the creative arts provide for the students, staff and the community.”

The event was planned and organised by the school’s head of art Dawn Beedle and head of music Leah West.
