(Festival Bar open from 7pm)
Festival Marquee
Tickets: £7.50 adult I £5 child/student U21

(on sale from 28 April)

Since the very first St Edmund’s Festival the Pupil Cabaret has been a ‘must see’ and is a wonderful opportunity for the pupils to impress us with their talents. Variety entertainment has always been a favourite of the British and this event is naturally a sell-out. As always, you can expect an evening full of surprises and good old-fashioned entertainment. Join our very own ‘new’ double act, Joe Goodwin and Scarlett Newman-Cousins, as they host this wonderful show in the Festival Marquee.

Come and watch teams of young entrepreneurs pitch their innovative ideas to a panel of formidable dragons, including veteran Dragon’s Den candidate and former St Edmund’s student, Mark Wong. Before teams submit their ideas for shortlisting, Mark will deliver an inspiring talk to Senior School pupils about his experience on this hit BBC TV series when he was launching his own business, Impossibrew in 2022 – now a successful company manufacturing no-alcohol beer. The winning team will receive a prize and who knows, may even go on to turn their business idea into a reality!

Grimm's Fairy Tales

Friday 30 June I 2pm & 7pm
Tickets: £7.50 adult I £5 child/student U21

Running time approx: 1 hour
(including a 15 minute interval)

Great theatre exists in the space between actors and audience, and is as elusive and silvery as the paths that wind through dark woods of fairy tales. Carol Ann Duffy and Tim Supple’s re-telling of two Grimm tales, Snow White and Rumplestiltskin, journey into the bright, warped world of a child’s imagination, as told through the eyes of our talented St Edmund’s Junior School pupils.
