Last Thursday, Fyling Hall School played host to a fabulous charity music concert which was organised in aid of the victims of the earthquake in Nepal.
The concert was held in our beautiful walled ‘Rose Garden’, and the magical mood of the evening was only magnified by the atmospheric and moody weather. The heavens often threatened to end the night’s music with the occasional shower, but strategically placed umbrellas and an audience that were spellbound by both the talent on show and the storm that raged in the distance over in Ravenscar, meant that the musical evening was able to unfold without a wet interlude.
Picnic blankets, camping chairs, children running free and plenty of good food and wine helped to set the festival mood while audience members listened to some of the best musicians from the local area.
The line up included: Miles Pascall, Tapsalteeri’O, George Husband, Phil Moore, Natasha Graham and The Curse and the Amplifier.
The concert, which sold around 200 tickets, as well as various other charity activities that have been organised by Fyling Hall’s pupils over the last few months, helped to raise an impressive £2804 for the victims of the Nepal earthquake.
Thank you to all of the wonderful artists who helped to make the evening so special; Mrs Wormald for organising the event; the children of Fyling Hall for helping to make it possible; and to Mr Stephenson and Mr Gardener, Fyling Hall’s gardeners, for working tirelessly throughout the year to provide our school with such beautiful gardens that we can all use and enjoy.
