Beckton children launch two-week festival

An exhibition of artwork by children at a primary school will help kick off a fortnight-long festival.

The exhibition, which will open tomorrow, is part of a two-week Arts Festival at Gallions Primary school, in Warwall which began today. The art exhibition is a celebration of the curriculum work completed by students at the school working with the artist in residence and teachers.

On Thursday, the school will be launching a fundraising campaign for the Gallions Music Block at Stratford Circus in Theatre Square, Stratford.

On Friday, there will be a summer lunchtime concert at the school.

Next week on July 4, Year 4 will be performing a play, the Last Word. It will be the first time this play will be performed by the students since they staged it at the Unicorn Theatre earlier this year.
