Central wows crowd at Equinox Festival

Posted In Creative, Music

An evening that promised great live music, BBQ food and summer vibes certainly delivered! On Friday 14th September, Bethany School hosted its first ever music festival organised by the Year 13 BTEC Music pupils who had been working tirelessly over the summer to ensure that the festival was a success. With over 100 tickets sold, Head of Music, Jonny Brinson, was pleased with the outcome of Equinox Festival.

He said: “The pupils had created an atmosphere that had a real buzz to it. There were people enjoying the food and drink, some watching the live music or even some people getting their face painted. There really was something for everyone and it was so lovely to see the festival-goers of all ages enjoy themselves.”

Throughout the evening, the crowds were treated to a fantastic line up of acts including Scowl, former pupil Jess Daubeny, Connie Towers and Bob and Keira and to finish the festival off in style, the headlining band rocked a45-minute set. Central – made up of Year 13 pupils Abi Bristow, James Clarke, Warwick Crewe-Brown and Natalie Whyte – had practised for this moment for over two months.

Year 13 pupil, Natalie Whyte, said: “The best thing about it was that I was genuinely enjoying myself. Usually, I get so nervous before I perform but I had organised the event. I couldn’t help but have fun and enjoy myself.”

Well done to our Music department for organising such an enjoyable and successful event.
