Director of Culture | Mr Matt Cocking
Congratulations to all those involved in the 2017 All Hallows’ / Gregory Terrace production of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Over 750 members of our two school communities experienced a truly magical show. Thanks to AHS for putting on this production and great work to our 10 boys who were involved. We look forward to shortly announcing our 2018 Musical.
