Welcome to King’s Week 2014. This year’s festival of arts, music, drama and scholarship will once again act as the finale to The King’s School academic year, undoubtedly bringing an enormous sense of pride, admiration and awe to all those lucky enough to attend.
Following last year’s success it is hard to believe that King’s Week has grown even larger, but it has! With 83 separate events (in 30 locations) there is something different for everybody every day of the week. The regular musical, dramatic and artistic events continue to feature and the Green Court, as always, will be a hub of activity.
New events for this year include: Ganz Franz, a concert of Schubert’s music accompanied by Austrian drinks and nibbles; Show Jumping at Birley’s; a Charity Fête at St. Augustine’s; a Boat Naming Ceremony by the distinguished sailor Miranda Merron (OKS); Acoustic Corner, for pupils to offer light musical entertainment; King’s Week Bake Off for all those budding bakers who like a challenge; and croquet on the Lattergate Lawn. There will also be the opportunity to purchase a King’s Week Hamper, cooked and produced by sixth formers. You could even record a video diary entry for King’s Week TV, before it broadcasts the evening events live from 7.30-10pm on this website.
Please do come and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of the Canterbury Cathedral precincts, and marvel at the talent of The King’s School pupils. If you would like a hard copy of the King's Week brochure then simply contact us; there is so much on offer this year that it would be a shame not to be aware of all that is available. Do study this website carefully, follow us on twitter (@kingsweekupdate), and block-book the week in your calendar. King’s Week 2014 will be the best week of the year.
Thursday 26 June until Wednesday 2 July 2014.
