A Royal Fanfare on the Fives Courts

Friday 25 May 2018

To mark the Royal Wedding last Saturday, a specially convened brass ensemble played the National Anthem in the fives courts as pupils walked to lessons for first period. 

Not only do the fives courts provide natural amplification, projecting the sound around the south side of the Site, but they were in fact the location of Prince Harry’s only visit to Shrewsbury School, in 1999, as part of the Eton Fives squad in the National Championships.
