WHGS Virtual Christmas Concert

Monday 14th December - Thursday 17th December 2020

While a Music Concert could not take place in the Great Hall this year, we were still keen to celebrate the success of all pupils and spread some festive cheer. 

From Monday 14 December to Thursday 17 December, musical pieces will be available to watch here and on other social media platforms. 

This series of mini events, accumulating in a virtual Christmas Concert, features the All-Stars Cuban Band, Year 10 Vocalists and Soloists, and songs from our Primary Phase children. Everyone will be able to access the following programme of wonderful musicians and pieces. We would like to also take this opportunity to wish everyone well at the Henshaw's Society, we are looking forward to providing entertainment in the not-too-distant future.

We hope to be able to soon perform a live concert in the Great Hall but, until then, please make sure to access the wonderful mini concerts below:
