Christmas Panto! 2021

What better way to kick off the start of the Christmas holidays than by putting on a good old fashioned British panto.

The whole College got to enjoy the outrageously funny annual Christmas pantomime today, performed by our Senior Leadership Team and a selection of teaching staff.

This year's performance was titled 'ABBA visits Pantoland', a brilliant and original story about a quest to find a new member for the 70's band. Featuring fairies, witches, Queens and Kings, all competing to be part of the band. The performance perfectly blended classic pantomime and pop culture with a few Crookhorn related gags, references and dance-offs thrown into the mix, all themed around ABBA's iconic songs. In this competition there's no second prize... The Winner Takes It All!

The main hall was filled with laughter and cheers throughout the four performances today. Thank you to all the staff involved, including the Creative Arts department for organising the production and to everyone behind the stage helping out. A brilliant way to finish the autumn term!
