Bring Back Big Ben! by Amelia Clarkson

Pupils of St Saviour's CofE School will perform this new musical especially composed for the occasion.

THE STORY

Big Ben feels unwanted in our digital world. He decides it's about time he took a long-overdue (and rather unofficial) holiday. But how will London cope when the bells go silent? Join St Saviourís and Londonís iconic clock tower on this fun-filled musical adventure!

St Saviour's School

St Saviour's is delighted to be involved with the Herne Hill Festival this year.† We are a one form entry primary school attached to St. Saviour's Church on Herne Hill Road. Music and Drama are strengths of the school. Most of our children learn a musical instrument, and the Christmas show, class assemblies and the Year 6 end-of-year show are highlights in the school year. Our Year 5 Class will be performing Bring Back Big Ben.

Pocket Sinfonia, with Tim Keasley

Come and join Pocket Sinfonia for an interactive concert for families and introduce your child to the joy of classical music. The concert will be centred around†Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite.†Join us on a journey to the Land of Sweets, ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy!

Pocket Sinfonia is reinterpreting orchestral masterpieces with the fresh spontaneity and intimacy of a chamber group. Inspired by the transcriptions of Mozart, Beethoven and Weber by J. N. Hummel, Pocket Sinfonia has created and commissioned new arrangements of orchestral works by Grieg, Prokofiev, and Tchaikovsky.

Tim Keasley, animateur and music practitioner, will take part in the show and engage the children in the musical stories.
