Christmas Concerts tickets now available

Concert posterAs the Colston Hall is closed for refurbishment this year, we have a welcome return to our own Hexagon Theatre. Many of our young people will be taking to our stage on Wednesday 12 December and Thursday 13 December, joined by pupils from two of our partner primary schools, Cadbury Heath and The Tynings Primary Schools [Wednesday only].  It will be an event not to be missed and one which we trust will bring our community together to enjoy making music.

Tickets are on sale at the school office from Wednesday 5 December at the cost of £3.00 and £2.00 for concessions. All parents/carers and friends of the academy are invited to come along and enjoy the shows; please extend to others a warm welcome on our behalf. Cheques should be made payable to ‘King’s Oak Academy’.

As the Hexagon has a considerably smaller capacity than the Colston Hall, we would ask you to buy your tickets as promptly as possible; this will help us as we put into place the more detailed planning arrangements for the concert.

During the evening, a silver collection will be held for the South Gloucestershire Young Carers, which we hope you will support.

Refreshments and a raffle will also be available.

 We look forward to your company on either Wednesday 12 December [primaries] or Thursday 13 December [secondary].
