Summary of activity in 2016-2017

Wednesday 11 October 2017

This year we have continued to give financial support to encourage the appreciation of art & music in schools in this rural area.

In the Autumn of 2016 we donated £250 to pay for a landscape artist to work in the park at Holkham Hall with senior students of Fakenham Academy for a day of drawing.  This opportunity to enhance their skills was much enjoyed.

We have developed a working relationship with The Purcell School of Music & were delighted to support their outreach programme (Impulse) in West Norfolk with a donation of £1,000.  In June some Year 11 musicians visited 3 primary schools & gave a whole school "Golden Assembly" & led workshops which were enthusiastically received by the children who loved the opportunity to listen, play & participate in a range of musical activities.

This school year the funding which was traditionally given by Norfolk Music has ceased & our Committee has agreed to commit £2,180 to sponsor a similar visit to 3 schools in June 2018.  The students will stay at The Yorke Trust & at the weekend will give concerts in 3 local churches which will be supported by local people.
