Old Blundellian Theatre Production – This December

A young theatre group of Old Blundellians is aiming to raise awareness and funds for a mental health charity with a specially-written play based in Devon. The comedic tragedy opens in the Second World War and follows the life of Richard, a Devon farmer, through to later life as he struggles with dementia, while his friends have their own battles with anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The humorous dialogue will have the audience laughing and crying as they watch the characters adapt to the changing world around them.

Take a Seat Concert – A Concert for our Donors

After a long wait, we were delighted to host a reception and musical concert for donors of our ‘Take a Seat’ initiative.

Over 150 donors bought 300+ chairs for Big School. Each chair has a small plaque adhered to the back to recognise their support.

To thank these donors, they were invited back for a reception followed by a Chamber Orchestra Concert of ‘The Carnival of the Animals’ so they could sit in their seats!

You can view the concert online via the link.
