Prep schools enjoy Tudor music at Bedales

Bedales hosted a workshop for young musicians recently to give them a taste of music education and the chance to experience participation in a concert in the Olivier Theatre. Students from Bloo House, Camelsdale First School, Conifers, Dorset House, Knightsbridge School, Newton Prep and Oakwood School joined students from Dunhurst, Block 5 and the Sixth Form.
