Children from Herman Academy joined others from around the borough of Great Yarmouth in preparing the town for the annual Out There Festival. Pupils where involved in making decorations for St. George’s Park to ensure that the stage was appropriately set for the arrival of the thousands of visitors who attended the weekend.
The Out There Festival is the largest festival of it’s kind in the east of England and fast becoming one of the UK’s leading events, with an international reputation for presenting excellent artistic work and rich mix of indoor and outdoor performance.
Regularly attracting more than 60,000 people, the festival blends iconic international acts and the finest UK performers with massive amounts of community participation, family fun and lots of hands-on things to do.
Herman pupils were invited to join circus workshops designed to help children understand the skills required to perform at the event. The classes, run by Great Yarmouth-based Lost in Translation Circus, saw children take part in Juggling, hoola hoop and balancing skills lessons, culminating with the children attempting to support each other to form a human pyramid.
Mollie in Year 5 said, “It was a great experience and I am very proud to have been chosen. I’d definitely like to do the same next year as it was tremendous fun!”
