Shrewsbury School

OS Arts and Activities

Set up following the excellent and varied Old Salopian Art Exhibition held at the Art School in 2010, and taking into account the considerable interest in the significant place that Music and Art holds in Shrewsbury School and the country, all Old Salopians are welcome to become members of the Old Salopian Arts and Activities Club.

The Club pincipally promotes events involving Old Salopians or other Salopians (pupils, parents and former members of staff)..  Notably, these have included theatre and concert trips and a very well-attended private viewing at the Queen's Galleries, Buckingham Palace in 2013.   Since then Old Salopians have been involved in and/or attended a number of Salopian-related concerts and plays and art exhibitions.  Much more is planned for the 2014-15 season.

Promote your event

 Current  Chairman Peter Fanning asks all Old Salopians who are involved in the Arts to send to the office anything they would like to post on this website and on our social media (Facebook and Twitter) sites:  exhibitions, perfomances, events, festivals - anything you would like us to know about and to to help Old Salopians to keep in touch with the considerable activity taking place. Please email:

Arts News and Events also appear on the Old Salopian News pages.

Details of School concerts and arts events are listed on the website under 'Beyond the Classroom'. The current programme is also available to download in pdf format:
