Show rocks Bedales

By Neil Hornsby, Guitar Teacher and Rock Show Organiser
After the unparalleled success of the 2011 Bedales Rock Show, the cast and crew this year knew they had to raise their game in order to leave their mark firmly in Rock Show history. This meant countless hours of blood, sweat and tears, culminating in an unforgettable show. Incredible debuts by Rosheen Bond, Delilah Montagu and Josie Blakelock as well as phenomenal performances from our departing 6.2s Becca Wilson and Georgie Wadstein made this a truly special night.

Bedales School

Jasper Ford Welman, Zak Hobbs and Will Reynolds (the legendary Rock Show “Pit Crew”) kept the show running like clockwork whilst also performing to the highest possible standard. Established superstars Lucy Waterhouse, Georgie Deane and The Grooves added further chapters to their already illustrious Rock Show careers and above all else, the one and only Freddy Sheed proved himself to be quite simply the greatest drummer in Bedales history. Those who were there will not easily forget…..Read more and view photos.

An eclectic programme ranging from rock to pop, via country, folk and soul will be presented by established superstars George Eve and Lucy Waterhouse, who this year are joined by the incredible Becca Wilson, the two marvellous Georgies (Wadstein and Deane) along with amazing debut performances by Delilah Montagu and Kris Rolt. Strings, brass, the Rock Show Choir, flutes and even a little oboe are added to the mix to make sure that the Bedales Rock Show 2012 (2 & 3 February) will live long in the memory.
