House Singing Tickets

This year’s House Singing Competition takes place in the Alington Hall on Friday 18th October and tickets are available to order now. With every pupil performing on stage during the evening, this is the most popular event in the School’s musical calendar, so tickets have to be strictly limited to a maximum of two per family. Priority is given to parents of pupils involved in the Part Songs, in the Third Form and in the Upper Sixth (in that order), and tickets are allocated on a first come first served basis.

The Ticket Order Form is available to download here: House Singing Tickets 2019

Please return it by post or email to Natalie Lockwood, The Schools, Shrewsbury SY3 7BA;
