Southwold Beach Comes Alive

A painting of Southwold Beach by British artist Sir Stanley Spencer was the inspiration for Hethersett Middle School's latest arts week which culminated in an evening of drama and dance at the school on Tuesday 19th October.

Southwold Beach 1937 by Sir Stanley Spencer was the inspiration behind the children's performances and arts week.


Children from every year group at the school combined to produce a colourful display throughout the school of Punch and Judy puppets, miniature theatres, animations, beach balls and parasols, a fairground, rock pool collages and watercolours.

The Tuesday evenings entertainment featured "Beside the Seaside" - a play about a family's afternoon at Southwold Beach - a drama based on the Ancient Mariner, beach dances from around the world and music which included "Heatwave," "Sloop John B," "Windy Weather," "You Can't Keep a Horse in a Lighthouse" and an original composition "Southwold Beach," which was written by the children.

"All the children and staff worked extremely hard to provide a highly colourful event which it was an absolute joy to be part of," said chair of governors Peter Steward.
