Exciting news! As reported on the Holgate Website a few weeks ago Fern Farmer was shortlisted in ‘The Young Creative Award’. On the night of Monday 13th May 2013 Fern attended an award ceremony where she won the 13 – 15 year old category of a local photography competition. It is a Nottingham competition, and her category was 'Hidden Nottingham’. Well done Fern!
On Wednesday 1st May, Music and Drama Students from Holgate were invited by the president of the Hucknall Rotary Club, to provide entertainment at the club’s annual Afternoon Tea Event for the “Over-73s” of Hucknall.
The event has been running since the end of the Second World War, and so is seen as a most prestigious event. The Holgate Friday All-Stars attended in force, and performed “Dance With Me Tonight”, “Live and Let Die”, “Seven Nation Army” and “Little Brown Jug” The audience absolutely loved the music and singing, and the band were treated to massive whoops and cheers when they had finished.
