This year we treated the evening as a concert as we wanted to showcase “All of the Above” who won Landers got Talent in the summer. They played wonderfully and there were also amazing solo contributions from Charles Secombe (classical guitar), Sophie Winfield (flute), Cam Hughes playing his own composition on the piano, Redley Flowerdew (singing/guitar) Yselkla Hall (recorder) and Josephine Cowley (piano).
The girls of Palestrina Choir sang beautifully in the first half and parents joined members of Taverner choir for an spirited rendition of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus in the second half. There were also pieces played magnificently by the school’s Jazz Band and String Group.
The Cousin Jacks brought the evening to a close with their jocularity and happily Santa had not forgotten Mr Pascoe. His extremely bizarre presents matched his eccentric personality perfectly.
Mr Pascoe said “every year it gets more and more bizarre. Unfortunately the live sheep that they had intended to bring into school, was not allowed, at the last minute on health and safety grounds.”
