Diverse Academies Creative Arts Festival

On Thursday 14th December, a group of extremely talented year 8, 9 and 10 students from The Holgate Academy performed two pieces at the annual DALP Creative Arts Festival.
 
Each year, this event gets bigger and bigger, and our students arrived at beautiful Kelham Hall, and entered an enormous room with a stage, a sparkly star cloth behind, and hundreds of chairs set out for an audience.
