Oakthorpe Presents – Spring 2017

Ella Davis (Lower Sixth) and Izzie Piesse (Lower Sixth) write about the action from this year’s Oakthorpe Presents.

The backstage bustle, the last minute braids and a whole lot of nervous Shells: Oakthorpe Presents was bigger and better than ever!

Despite the somewhat hurried preparations the girls managed to put on a great show. The musical stylings of Sassy Hammersley (Lower Sixth), Daphne Inglis-Jones (Shell) and Tinka Hughes (Fifth Form) were particularly noteworthy, with everyone involved giving spectacular and emotive performances. A number of well-choreographed and impressive dances were also a huge highlight.

A wide variety of videos, filmed and edited by Cicely Vane (Lower Sixth) and Izzie Piesse, gave a rare behind-the-scenes look at the diverse and fun-loving house that is Oakthorpe. Overall the evening was a great triumph and showcased the many talents of the House.
