MTI Junior Theatre Festival

3rd January 2019


An exciting opportunity for our Year 7 and 8 pupils who normally take part in our school shows (or indeed those who don't and would like to try something new). Please contact the office for more information.

We are very excited to announce that we are organising a one night residential trip for our Year 7 and 8 pupils. The residential will take place from Friday 10th May- Saturday 11th May 2019. We will be participating in the MTI Junior Theatre Festival at Birmingham ICC. The MTI Junior Theatre Festival is an opportunity for Schools and Youth Groups from across Europe to come together to perform an extract of a Broadway Junior show, take part in workshops, celebrate their accomplishments and be fully immersed in musical theatre.

We will be travelling to Birmingham by train on Friday 10th May 2019. We will then spend one night at Hatters Hostel, Birmingham. The MTI Junior Theatre Festival will then take place on Saturday 11th May 2019 before we return to Newcastle on the Saturday evening (pupils will need to be collected from Newcastle Central Station on the Saturday evening).

The cost of this visit is £145 with a non-refundable deposit of £50 (payable before Thursday 31st January), which will be needed to secure your child’s place. Staged payments are welcomed on an agreement letter to follow.
