Students at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar, Alford, have been getting stuck in to lots of exciting activities for their annual Creativity Day including Taiko drumming, circus skills, craft making and drama. 

Two groups of Year 12 students worked with Sue Freebury, professional West End actress, singer and vocal coach, and with our very own YJA Mentors to record a set of comedy radio sketches in just an hour and a half. You can listen and enjoy them below.


Group One


Pet Shop

Interview with Sir Edward Ross

Group Two

Why did the chicken…

Interview with Sir Edward Ross

The Peasants

    I really enjoyed the day and it was great watching and listening to everyone that took part really throw themselves into it.

    On some of the recordings you can hear a drumming sound…Even though we were in a completely different building those Taiko Drummers were LOUD!
