Poetry Banquet 2014

This year’s Poetry Banquet was a stunning success, devised by the Banquet Committee – Matthew Dawson, Issy Coulston, Karolin Reuther, Beatrice Smith, Chidubem Okoye and Anthony Chow.

Every Poet (students in year 12) contributed to what was a first-class evening, enjoyed by over 250 guests. The service was both impeccable and charming and the ambulacrum looked wonderful. Music, dance and conjuring tricks kept everyone entertained throughout: the schedule included classical music, a jazz band, The Dead Poet Society and a special, ‘Beatbox Transition’, guest appearance from Mr Bickerstaff.

Auctioneers and raffle-ticket sellers cajoled guests into making generous contributions to the Stonyhurst Children’s Holiday Trust, in the nicest possible way!
Thank you, Poets, for all your hard work, ingenuity, team work and dedication. Watch this space for news of the final total raised, to give children from local special schools the time of their lives at Stonyhurst in the summer.
