We were so pleased to welcome back the brilliant theatre company Jenny Wren after their fantastic production of The Scarlet Pimpernel in the Elms grounds in 2019. The Autumn evening weather was perfect as our large audience snuggled down with blankets to enjoy a new adaptation of the classic children’s novel, “The Railway Children.” It was a beautifully inventive piece with plenty of musical interludes and creative use of costume and props to create a sense of place and tone. The actors were superb, and Y5/6 Drama Club pupils were excited to meet them for a chat as they set up the stage earlier in the afternoon. Our children were an excellent audience, fully engaged with the performance from beginning to end and enjoying a well-deserved interval ice-cream too! This was a wonderful treat to enjoy together at the start of our school year.
