The Dance Festival at The Weston Playhouse
High drama this year as the evening was brought to an abrupt and early end by flooding at the theatre. The burst pipe occurred in the corridor right by our dressing rooms. It was really dramatic as the water was issuing from the pipe in a really powerful way. It was like a water cannon!
Hundreds of pupils, staff and parents had to evacuate to Grove Park while the fire brigade rushed to halt the flow of water and then pump out all of the water.
Westhaven pupils and staff were absolutely spot on in their response to the evacuation call and nobody was hurt though clearly lots of people were shocked and disappointed by the turn of events.
It was a shame too as the performances at the dress rehearsal were very warmly received and everyone was “raring to go”.
We will let you know if a replacement date is set up for the festival but it may just have to be written off for this year, we will see.
