Ahoy!

Children from our school choir finally took part in the performance of Ahoy! which they have been working towards for months. What a super evening! Children from local primary schools, ex-St Mary’s pupils, a large adult choir and a super band, as well as dancers from the Ranger School of Dance, all celebrating the recovery of the Mary Rose with sea shanties and new music. Thank you as always to Jay Buckle for leading us in this uplifting venture.
