Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The boarders visit the West End
Date posted: 15/03/16
One Saturday this March the whole boarding community took a day-trip to London. We based ourselves in Covent Garden where, in addition to the attraction of the many shops and market stalls, the girls were highly entertained by the street entertainers performing magic tricks, juggling, uni-cycling and even climbing a freestanding ladder!
In the afternoon, we went to see the musical show of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’ The sets were colourful and the girls were very impressed with the child actors. There was also much discussion on the performance of the Oompa Loompa’s and which parts of them were real actors and which parts were puppetry. All the girls agreed it was a very enjoyable day out.
