On Wednesday 21st of November the Creative Arts faculty took 41 Art, Drama and Music students to London. The day started with a very early bus journey leaving Qegs at 5.30am. Students and staff were in high spirits looking forward to our exciting day taking in some of the diverse cultural experiences London has to offer.

We arrived at the Tate Modern where students viewed the galleries collection of artwork. Whilst here, A Level Art and Photography students found inspiration for their personal investigation topics guided by Miss Dicken’s.

Leaving the gallery Mr Watkin’s led us towards Covent Garden and Leicester Square for our lunch, where we were able to get into the festive spirit taking in the Christmas markets and viewing the street performances that were taking place.

We arrived at The Apollo Theatre in time for our matinee performance of ‘Everybody’s talking about Jamie’, a fantastic production that made us laugh, cheer and cry. It was great to see students so immersed in the production and to hear them excitedly talking about their favourite part when we left made the long day very worthwhile.
