Ysgol Maes Garmon TheatreTrain Visit

This weekend I visited Ysgol Maes Garmon to wish some of the 50 children from Mold all the best with their forthcoming performance at The Royal Albert Hall in London.

50 children from Mold between the ages of six and eighteen will be travelling to London in September to perform at The Royal Albert Hall. Every year Theatretrain pupils from around the UK have the opportunity to perform in this prestigious venue but the Mold School pupils are particularly excited as this year marks Theatretrain’s 25th birthday.

The Mold School meets at Ysgol Maes Garmon every Saturday morning during term time where children enjoy classes in dancing, acting and singing. They also stage productions every other term. Six of their pupils have been selected to sing as soloists at the event which will have approximately 1,000 performers and nearly 5,000 audience members.

I was able to visit the children on Saturday 2 September 2017 to see how preparations were going.

I want to congratulate all those involved in the brilliant preview performance I saw at Ysgol Maes Garmon. The talent of the children was exceptional and I know that they will give a fantastic performance at The Royal Albert Hall later this month.

Theatretrain is an excellent organisation that provides children with quality teaching and fun activities to help get them involved in the arts: be it singing, dancing or acting. The children I met were thoroughly enjoying their time at the after school club and were gaining a love for the arts.

We have so much artistic talent in Flintshire and this is just one example of that.
