The extra-curricular Creative Arts programme at Gillingham School has sought to bring an exciting programme of performing artists to our community of North Dorset. We have presented such companies as: Kneehigh Theatre, Miracle Theatre, Theatre Alibi and Naive Theatre,Jaleo Flamenco Dance, Brekete African Dance, Motionhouse and Attik Contemporary Dance Theatres and Mujenkyo Japanese Drummers.
Young musicians of The Dorset Philharmonic, The David Gordon Trip and The International Jazz Quartet of Christian Garrick have all performed to large and appreciative audiences at our school venue.
The students and staff of Gillingham School also present an annual series of concerts and theatre performance that draw in large audiences and often support major charities.
These arts events have all been hosted by staff and students to serve our wider audiences and to make the Arts available and accessible to everyone.
To achieve this we are grateful for the patronage and sponsorship our local business community have given to help us maintain and extend the range and quality of Arts we can present to the many audiences of North Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset.
