The Mounts Bay Academy 24 Hour Gig ran at the this week, from 09:00 on Thursday morning right through the night to 09:00 on Friday morning.
On Thursday Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 were invited down to watch performances for a whole lesson each for a £1 entrance fee. This was followed on Thursday early evening by performers from local primary schools joining us between 4:30 and 6:00pm. There were some wonderful performances from these youngsters.
At 7pm the Academy threw open it’s doors to the public who were treated to a really fantastic evening concert with a wide range of performances from Academy musicians as well as bands and performers from the community. After the public left for a good nights sleep the intrepid MBA students played acoustic sets right through the night, with some rather impressive karaoke at about 4am! To finish off their epic endeavour the students entertained Year 11 students in their morning assembly – and from the quality of their voices, one would not have known they had been up all night! Well done to all concerned – we hope you catch up on your sleep over half term!
