When Dramatis was invited to take part in the Bognor Regis Carnival “Royal Wave” themed parade as part of the town’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations – we knew exactly the costume for us!
As a drama school with an ethos rooted in kindness, we wanted to give the red heart in our logo a Royal twist…and so Principal Suzy became the Queen of Hearts and pupils transformed into a deck of cards for the day!
On Saturday 4th June, we joined hundreds of other local community groups and a range of floats on a parade that started on the Sea Front and travelled through the Town Centre and up to West Park.
Pupils soon got into character, shouting (various versions of!) “off with their heads” towards delighted crowds!
In West Park, we joined in the celebratory atmosphere, playing a few drama games together – before pupils headed off to explore the food and drink stands with their families.
We were back bright and early the next day, to continue celebrations and spread the word about Dramatis from our stand. Thank you to all the pupils (and parents!) who joined us in marking this historic occasion and congratulations to the Bognor Regis Carnival Association for organising on a brilliantly run event.
