Almost every Blackpool school (93%) performed at Schools Alive 2017 at the Grand Theatre during and throughout the week starting 6th February.
All participating schools provided a 15 minute programme from stage and screen and to capacity audiences. This wonderful, inclusive event showed our schools at their very best with superb singing, dancing, theatre and circus skills.
The event featured almost 2,000 children aged from 8 to 22 years of age.
The numerous standing ovations clearly identified the continued high standards of performance and audiences appreciation.
Our appreciation must also include the support received from compere Miss Hayley Kay (Radio Wave) and the fantastic house, sound, lighting and stage staff at the Grand Theatre who provided much of the continuous professional development for all staff and support for all our young performers.
