Grease & Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival

An action packed weekend

As a tired group of children went up to bed on Sunday night, the talk was that this had ‘been the best weekend ever’! Looking back over Saturday and Sunday the boarders certainly had some excellent events to attend and I must thank Miss Pugh for all her hard work in organising the two days.

On Saturday afternoon, following the two wins against Moreton Hall, the children all had match tea and it was onto the coach for the journey to Ipswich Regent for the 5pm show of ‘Grease’. Dancing and singing from all the group was compulsory including the staff!

After an evening buffet and a good night’s sleep Sunday started with the Chapel choir singing very well at Thorpe Morieux Church and the sermon was led by Rev Winter, Chaplain of Ipswich School. On our return to school a little bit of down time was followed by an early lunch and then it was off to the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival.

The choir had a two hour busking session in which they impressed all those who listened to them while the rest of the boarders had a ‘food foray’ (scavenging for food in the wild!) and then the chance to visit the many food stalls and try their free samples which was on offer. A particular favourite was the fudge stall which supplies Harrods, and to the stall holders delight we visited him again at the end of the day to buy all the children a bag of fudge and finish off what was a great afternoon.

After a superb roast dinner on our return it was off to the dorms to talk about the tough life as a boarder!
