Students from the school are among the cast performing with the Orchestra of the Swan for Benjamin Britten’s community opera Noye’s Fludde – Noah’s Flood – which forms part of this year’s Shipston Proms starting next week.

There will be three performances of the opera at Townsend Hall, Shipston, on Friday and Saturday 28th and 29th June.

The work is part of celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

Also staging the production is Shipston Music Society. Pupils from Shipston Primary School are also taking part, as well as the town’s Amateur Dramatic Society, Shipston Town Council, Shipston Town Band, Cantamus, Community Arts and individual local musicians.
