Many thanks to all who contributed to the Buns & Biscuits day on the 15th March. We had masses of cakes to sell, as well as second hand music and musical instruments. I think we will be running these days again regularly. Watch out for further announcements next term!
In 2013 the Friends funded the making of some special heavy duty canvas bags to protect the Music Service’s wonderful new Taiko drums. You can see the letter of thanks we got here -> Letter of Thanks to Friends of BCMS.
Thanks to proceeds from the Tuck Shop, the Friends are organising a subsidised day trip to London on Sunday 15th June to go to the LSO Discovery Family Concert Trains, Planes and Automobiles. It will be a full day as we will have specially arranged workshops with members of the LSO for our students. It should be fun!
