Students, staff and parents of St Gregory’s Bath will be hosting a fantastic evening of entertainment and fundraising on Friday 29 November, as part of the school’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

The show-stopping event will set the scene for the school’s 2019 fundraising target to raise money for school projects at St Gregory’s as well as ambitious plans for a new community theatre.
 
Students past and present, supported by the cast of Curtain Up Theatre School, will take to the stage in a performing arts showcase ‘Through the Decades’ celebrating music and theatre from 1979-2019. Iconic numbers from shows such as Fame, Annie, Les Misérables, 42nd Street, Chicago, Moulin Rouge and more will be performed by St Gregory’s performers, including some who have celebrated stunning success in the West End and Broadway, combine with an Auction of Promises to deliver a fundraising night to remember.
