Welcome to our Spring season brochure. We invite you to Tonbridge School to enjoy a wide range of Arts Events, and we are sure that there will be something for you in our programme.
If, for example you were tortured by maths lessons at school, then come and laugh at Stand Up Maths to exorcise some ghosts! Happy memories of Dame Julie Andrews and Morecambe and Wise can be rekindled with Julie Madly Deeply and Eric and Little Ern. There is plenty for young children, too, with The Pillow Maker, The Just So Stories and Big Red Bath programmed specifically for youngsters. Many of you will delight in the return of Ballet Central, and the Good Friday performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion promises to be moving and inspirational.
Excitingly for the School, we can also announce the inauguration of the transformed Old Big School as an artistic space. I leave you with some words from Emily Glass, the new curator of the Gallery:
"Old Big School Gallery will bring contemporary art to the heart of the school; we will be showing work by both established and emerging artists alongside art work from the school community. The first exhibition, In the Flesh, will take the body as its theme and include work by Henry Moore, Tracy Emin, Chris Ofili and Craigie Aitchison, together with recent art school graduates, teachers and students at the school.
Our gallery programme includes an exhibition of contemporary Chinese Art, selected works from the winners of a national art competition, exhibitions of contemporary print and ceramics, and a competition for art students in the South East.
The space will be open to the public from 10am - 4pm Friday to Sunday during exhibitions and we very much look forward to seeing you in the Gallery soon."
