“Your Country Called”

Bridging Time, Generations and Communities an evening of words, music and performance by Richmond School Community Arts and Military WAGS Choir Catterick.

Richmond School is producing "Your Country Called" in conjunction with the Town's 'Richmond Remembers' festival. Both the School and College theatre companies are devising the performance, that involves dance, song and physical theatre. The original stimulus was an account of a moment in the First World War that affected the town through the Green Howards, written by Capt. Herbert Read D.S.O., M.C. Our work explores not just the soldiers at the front but the impact at home, with a focus on ordinary people's responses to extraordinary events. Within this performance Chloe Woods, in Year 13, will present a section of work that is the culmination of her extended project qualification. Alongside this, there will be music from the Military WAGS Choir, with a focus on our community. It is set to be a wonderful evening of entertainment, marking the 100-year anniversary of a World War 1 battle involving the town's Green Howards' regiment. Tickets, priced £7.50 and £3.50 for under 18s.

Profits to Richmond Branch of Royal British Legion

  • 15th September 2016 - Snake Davis Event
  • After an afternoon of workshops directed by Snake Davies, a concert was held to help raise funds for Josh Devlin's school trip to Peru in 2017. The supporting act was the Richmond School Jazz Band, with Snake Davies appearing on stage shortly after.

Our community Shakespeare festival in the The Georgian Theatre Royal. We had two performances covering Shakespeare interpretations from our Sixth Form Theatre Company, Year 7-10 Drama Company, Richmond Church of England Primary School Year 5 and the Theatre Youth Company.
The School Jazz Band opened the proceedings on the Star Radio stage in Northallerton to welcome the third stage of the Tour Du Yorkshire. The band played a rousing set in the pouring rain to entertain the crowds as they gathered to watch the race.

 

   

Villagers, visitors and parents alike were treated to a lovely afternoon of music making by the talented students at Richmond School. Within the beautiful setting of Monkend Hall, Richmond School Wind Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Rock Band Millefluer, entertained with a wide selection of music from the classical sounds of the Spiritual setting, 'When the Stars Began to Fall' to the modern sounds of Uptown Funk!

Richmond School started with the Wind Band, a KS3 band made up of students developing their talent. The band played a selection of TV and Film favourites including Mission Impossible, Star Ward and Music from Grease. The Concert Band (for more advanced students) took to the stage performing amongst others, highlights from West Side Story, Lord of the Dance and the current Euro 2016 'Carnival de Paris'. The Jazz Band then stepped up with their take on the Count Basie standard 'One O'clock Jump', the timeless Chattanooga Choo Choo, concluding with firm favourite 'Moves Like Jagger' by Maroon 5. 

To round off a super days music, Evie Wright, Olly Carr, Adam Heseltine, Zak Hornby and Rob Tweddle performed as the electrifying Millefluer, with a distinctive mix of covers and original songs. The revellers were highly entertained all day and Richmond School has been asked to consider another visit to next years Fare!
