The Arts Summer Season at Ricards Lodge and RR6 begins with the Summer Dance Showcase. The event takes place on Thursday 14th June and showcases all of student’s work that they have been rehearsing throughout the past term. The talent is from a wide variety of disciplines, from Hip Hop to classical ballet. Tickets are available through Parentmail from Wednesday 23rd May until Tuesday 12th June.
The RR6 Jam night follows behind on the 18th June, with Year 12 Music taking us through the decades and sharing their solo and group performances (please note this is an assessment and will be by invitation only).
Year 13 Performing Arts will also have a chance to shine in their final performance of Metamorphosis on the 19th June, exploring Steven Berkoff’s adaptation and bringing the weird and wonderful vision to stage (please note this is an assessment and will be by invitation only).

Our final event of the season will be our yearly Summer Sounds Festival on the 19th July. This event is a fantastic afternoon for the whole family, with stalls and live music starting at 4pm.
