Animal Farm: English Theatre Trip

Last Friday, the English Department took 47 students, from across a range of year groups, to see a dynamic adaptation of Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm” at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton. 
Students were, without exception, impeccably behaved and thoroughly engaged in the performance, discussing thoughtfully what happened. It was a really, really positive experience for everyone involved (aside from the animals, obviously) at a beautiful little local theatre. 
Check out the images for an impression of the clever staging, dark mood and (contrastingly) the jolly Wellingtonian audience!
