'Ghyllstonbury' festival coming to Ilkley primary school

'Ghyllstonbury' festival coming to Ilkley primary school

Published at 11:47am 11th May 2018.

An Ilkley primary school is putting on a music festival for its annual family social and charity fundraising event.

Ghyll Royd Primary School will host 'Ghyllstonbury' in its grounds.  The sell-out event has received huge support from pupils, staff, parents and members of the local community.

It has been organised by staff and volunteers from the school and will feature local artists, food, drink, face painting and more, all set under a giant teepee provided by BarEvents UK.

The proceeds from the event will all go towards the school’s ‘Theatre of Dreams’ appeal – a 140 tiered seating structure for future educational and community events and performances. 

Ghyll Royd School has previously hosted performances by the Military Wives, the Singing Children of Africa and talks by Channel 4’s Brendan Sheerin.

Ghyll Royd School and Pre-School’s Headteacher Mr David Martin said:

“A lot of hard work and effort has gone into organising this unique event. Ghyllstonbury would not be possible without the support of Ghyll Royd staff, volunteers and the artists performing on the day.  As a sold out event, we hope to provide families with a fun day out here at Greystone Manor, one that will be remembered for years to come!  The money raised from the event will go towards the Theatre seats, enhancing our school’s performances and events and also benefitting the local community through hiring out our multipurpose hall for screenings, performances, events and more.”  

 Ghyllstonbury Festival will be officially opened by Ilkley Councillor Anne Hawkesworth.

Full details of the event and other Ghyll Royd School events can be found on their website: www.ghyllroydschool.co.uk.
