Haileybury Week kicks off!

HAILEYBURY WEEK 2010 starts this Thursday, 1 July, with an explosion of diverse events. Everything's free and we invite anyone to attend.

Highlights include the Prep Schools' Arts and Events Day on Thursday, which culminates in a performance of the Dragon Cantata and a narrative by Head of English Nigel Park of The Boy Who Never Grew Up.

On Friday, we can look forward to Head of Art Jason Marks' Extraordinary Installation and on Sunday, the Performance in the Park (latterly known as Shakespeare in the Park).
