60 students and 6 staff including 3 of the school’s peripatetic Music teachers had a wonderful time in the Rhine valley during the last week of the Summer term for the third West Bridgford School’s Music trip to Germany. We stayed in the idyllic setting of Bacharach Castle Youth Hostel – an amazing place to rest our weary heads at the end of each day’s sight-seeing and concert activities. Performances were in the towns of Rudesheim – a half mile walk downhill (uphill on the way back!) with amps, instruments, music stands etc in 90 degree heat; Boppard, on the banks of the Rhine, for which we had our smallest and least enthusiastic audience; and finally, a spa town called Bad Muenster which was definitely the best performance despite the heavens opening half an hour beforehand – all hands to the pump with tissues wiping all the seats down! The students as ever were excellent – great fun on the acting evening and extremely keen and helpful with all the organisation. Thanks to Mrs McKee, Miss Richardson, Mr Dyer, Noah Noutch, Merri Knight and Claire Seedhouse for the giving of their time.
