There was a huge amount of talent on show as the boys sang solos or in groups, played piano, drums, trumpets, guitars, steel pans, violins and cellos. We saw poetry performed, a karate demonstration and there were even some bamboozling card tricks. A group of year 5 boys gave us a satirical comedy sketch, 'Christmas with the Trumps and Clintons'.
The evening was hosted by Mr Hall, who, as always, tried to lay claim to the talents of all the boys who had been, or were now, in his form class! He then joined the rest of the male teachers as a member of the Sugar Lumps, a hilarious homage to girl bands of the nineties and noughties. Not to be outdone, the female staff followed with a Village People inspired performance of YMCA and the boys joined in with the iconic dance moves.
The audience sang along with the final number, 'Merry Christmas, Everyone', and ended the evening by giving all the performers a well deserved standing ovation.
