Musical Excellence

The combined musical talents of Ghyll Royd and Giggleswick School pupils were showcased in a delightful Tea Concert at Giggleswick’s Richard Whiteley Theatre.

The Theatre was transformed into a Palm Court Tea Room where the audience enjoyed a selection of musical delights to accompany their afternoon tea and cakes. An African Welcoming Song brought the two schools together in harmony, followed by a number of solos performed with confidence and enthusiasm, giving a taste of the depth and breadth of talent from both schools.

Fromm Ghyll Royd School there were impressive solos performances by Fran and Jack (Accordion), Olly and Alexander (Guitar), William (Piano) Bea (Violin) and vocals by Emily and William (Voice). The audience were also treated to an extra helping of solos by Giggleswick Senior School Music Scholars, including Arthur Swiffen (Cello) Mollie Bratt (Flute) Toby Lloyd (Piano) and Maddison Goode (Soprano Saxophone).

The unique event ended with Ghyll Royd School Choir performing a most charmingly beautiful song ‘Wings’.


‘The Tea Concert was a wonderful afternoon in which to showcase the childrens’ talents. The harmonious welcoming song performed by both schools was an excellent opening piece to the event and set the bar for the rest of the concert. Well done to both schools for their outstanding contributions to a delightful afternoon of music.’ Mr David Martin – Head Teacher.
