By on 24/06/2010 in News

Date: Saturday 26th June 2010
 
Time: 2pm - 4.30am
 
Location: Queensbridge School, Queensbridge Road, Moseley

Details: Street dance and Shakespeare will meet at a Birmingham school's summer celebration of the arts this weekend.
 
Queensbridge School is to stage the spectacle on Saturday, June 26th to showcase the creative talents of its pupils.
 
During the academic year, pupils at the Moseley-based school worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company to create their own version of The Winter's Tale.
 
At the other end of the artistic spectrum, Year 8 dance pupils completed a module in the increasingly popular phenomenon of street dance, culminating in a “dance battle” as part of their studies.
 
Both works will be on show during the Summer Fest at the school on Queensbridge Road, Moseley between 2pm - 4.30pm.
 
A range of other talents will also be displayed by pupils, including a rock band, classical music playing, samba and steel bands, cartoonists, henna painters, sewing and curriculum art on the theme of work, rest and play.
 
The school's acting head Helen Reeves said: “At Queensbridge we have one of the most wide and diverse range of artistic opportunities within any school in the country.
 
“Whether it's street dance or the works of William Shakespeare, we believe the arts play a major role in motivating and inspiring young people to achieve their best.
 
“The arts also help them become the sort of creative, independent thinkers increasingly sort by employers.
 
“The Summer Festival is a way to showcase the fantastic talents of our pupils. We are very proud of them and welcome everyone to come along and see what they can do!”
 
As well as live entertainment, there will also be a selection of stalls at the event selling a range of craft and food.
