What are the similarities with the 1920s, when Britain had survived the Spanish Flu and the Great War, and the 2020s? Back then, there was boundless hope and a new wave of optimism. The ‘Bright Young Things’ craved freedom, new ideas and excitement. Our Year 8 leavers gave a glimpse of what life might be like when we are free to party again by treating their parents to a ‘Roaring Twenties’ evening cabaret of entertainment. They performed scenes, songs and dances from a variety of 1920s musicals, ranging from flappers and dapper chaps to gangsters and molls. The sports hall was transformed into a ‘Speakeasy’, creating an atmosphere of ritzy glitz and glamour, ensuring everyone had a simply ripping time!
