Get ready to go global!

GET ready for a global get-together as children recreate traditions from around the world.

A Cultural Fusion evening taking place at Todmorden High School on Thursday, April 14, will feature a diverse range of music, dance and drama as pupils from the town’s primary and secondary schools celebrate the different cultures in Todmorden.

There will be music from the Polish choir at St Joseph’s Primary School, the Ferney Lee School signing choir, the Castle Hill Spanish singers and a French choir.

Shade School pupils will give a Chinese-themed performance and there will be dance routines by the Dawn Chapman Dancers and the Hill Millies Morris Dancers. Todmorden High School sixth formers will stage a piece of drama titled “An English Night Out”, Ferney Lee pupils will tell some stories and the audience will hear the tale of Incredible Edible.

Free fusion food will be served during the interval and there will be a raffle with prizes donated by Grandma Pollard’s chip shop, Gordon Rigg Garden Centre and The Vedas restaurant.

John Botterill, deputy headteacher at Todmorden High School, said: “We are anticipating a good evening.

“It’s a combination of primary and secondary schools celebrating our cultural diversity here in Todmorden.”

The event will start at 7pm.
