Woodley’s Deputy Mayor David Stares attended Addington Proms Week in July. An annual celebration of music from across the area at Addington School, it is an opportunity for musicians of all ages and abilities to share their music. There were four concerts daily, which were filled with class performances from Addington pupils and additional performances from instrumental ensembles, soloists and students who have instrumental lessons. Groups from the community, primary and secondary schools were also invited to be part of Proms Week, as performers, workshop leaders or audience members.
Deputy Mayor Stares was delighted to attend the event and see the variety of musical ability and style. “It was wonderful to see such a happy mix of students and community members experimenting with music and performing,” commented Stares.
