King’s Week Origins 1952 “The whole of the King’s Week, Dr Shirley declared, was a completely mad venture. No other community could do all that and play three cricket matches as well. It was quite mad and entirely successful. It was the finest bit of education the school had this year. Everyone was doing something.” [Kentish Gazette 01/08/52]

Welcome With 124 events, and only 37 of them requiring tickets, this year is bigger and better than ever. At the heart of King’s Week is the aim to provide opportunities for pupils to perform, create and present; to build confidence and encourage competence; to embrace ambition and seed inspiration. A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be the opening production in our brand new theatre, The Malthouse; also playing host to a spectacular KiDaCo on its huge stage. Wendy and Peter Pan will enthral in the gardens of St. Augustine’s, and the Junior King’s School will perform adaptations of The White Feather and The Government Inspector in St. Mary’s Hall.

Music will abound, ranging from the Serenade and the Bruckner Mass in E Minor to our version of David Bowie and the iconic Jazz on a Summer Sunset. Art will impress and brighten discussion throughout the School, alongside this year’s King’s Week Lectures. Sixth form chefs will prepare five special evenings of fine cuisine, and the Green Court will exude charm with vintage bicycles and quintessential tea. New elements for this year include: The Charmborough Ring, a scaled version of a complete belfry of six bells; a Just Dance competition and Film Festival using our Green Court Event Screen; Yoga on the Green Court and an African Dance Show in St. Mary’s Hall. As you can tell, there are too many events this year to highlight in such little space, so I strongly urge you to read this brochure carefully and check our website for further information. King’s Week is a celebration of all things wonderful, from food to fine art, drama to dance, music to magic. It’s a week not to be missed. #kweek19 Robert Sanderson (King’s Week Manager)

DRAMA

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Join us for a momentous occasion as we christen our beautiful new Malthouse Theatre with a lavish production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This production of Shakespeare’s magical comedy will pay homage to the industrial aesthetic of our new space, as, ‘Hand in hand with fairy grace, will we sing and bless this place’.

The second star to the right and straight on till morning… The Darling children are looking for their own Lost Boy as they travel to Neverland in the hope that they can be re-united for one last time and find their happy thought that will allow them to fly without the use of fairy dust.

The White Feather & The Government Inspector The Junior King’s School Year 7 drama companies present a double bill of plays. The White Feather is the touching story of a young couple finding love, set against the backdrop of the First World War, looking at the pressures placed upon young men to enlist in the armed forces. The Government Inspector is a comedy piece showing what happens when a group of local councillors discover that an inspector

from the government is coming to see how well they are running the town’s services. The problem is he will be arriving incognito! Be sure to join us – a love story and a comedy – the perfect afternoon’s drama.

Thursday 27 June 3.00pm St Mary’s Hall

DRAMA

Wendy and Peter Pan

Ella Hickson’s adaptation of this well-loved children’s tale will leave you both broken-hearted and cackling with laughter as we follow the adventures of fairies and pirates! Taking a feminist approach, Wendy, Tink and Tiger-Lily lead the rest of the Lost Boys on their quest for victory, while considering what it means to be a mother in Victorian Britain. Join the Shells and Removes in their deliberately playful promenade production, as we take you on your very own journey to Neverland. Guests are advised to bring a rug.

Friday 28 June

DRAMA

KiDaCo

La Familia Cuerda

Paris 1899. Satine, the most desired Courtesan of the Moulin Rouge is torn by the will of three men. The Duke, forcing her hand with his wealth, Zidler, who has masterminded her rise to fame, and her true love, the poet Christian. Three men tear Satine apart in this story of love and loss amidst the glamour and heartbreak of this famous Cabaret venue.

This play, performed entirely in Spanish, is a reflection of how family life has changed and how communication is complicating everything nowadays. With a tone of humour but also empathy, La Familia Cuerda will be an exciting and fun play for the entire family.

The KiDaCo dancers proudly present Moulin Rouge on the spectacular big stage in the new Malthouse Theatre, alongside a variety of new works from our extremely talented dancers. A show not to be missed!

Sunday 30 June

2.00pm The Malthouse Also Tuesday 2 July 1.45pm & Wednesday 3 July 2.00pm

Come along and enjoy watching how each of our characters try to adapt to the new social technological context. Authentic Spanish tapas and a cash bar will follow the play.

Friday 28 June 1pm Social Centre

In our traditional opening evening of King’s Week, the Modern Jazz Group comes together, led this year by pupil Head of Jazz, Kristina Rhodes, for an evening of intimate jazz. With a cool, jazz club vibe, senior jazz instrumentalists and vocalists will entertain you with two sets of fabulous music to get your foot tapping and your fingers clicking.

MUSIC

Jazz on a Summer Sunset

A cash bar will be available to accompany a complimentary Mediterranean meze per table. The marquee will be arranged with circular tables for 6 (cabaret style), and audience members are politely requested to keep silence while the music is performed.

Thursday Night is Music Night The Concert Orchestra and Concert Band, featuring musicians of all ages from across the School (as well as guests from other schools) return with a selection of light arrangements, this year marking the beginning of the World War II commemorations, eighty years after war broke out again in Europe. The musicians will be joined by members of the Jazz Combo, Percussion Ensemble and Saxophone Committee in this celebration of easy listening music.

Thursday 27 June

Should you be unable to book one of these highly sought-after tickets then King’s parents and OKS are welcome to enjoy the evening on the Green Court from outside the marquee (weather permitting).

MUSIC

Serenade

Virtuosi

The Serenade Choir, including members of the Crypt Choir and additional 6a singers, will perform an eclectic mix of evening music, joined by selected soloists, close harmony groups and instrumental ensembles. At a time when nations begin to set their sights on a new generation of moon landings, this performance will include a selection of pieces dedicated to our nearest astronomical neighbour.

The King’s School Chamber Orchestra presents a programme of American classics, all written between 1924 and 1944.

Guests are requested not to bring food or drink into the Cloisters but they are welcome to picnic on the Green Court. In the event of inclement weather the Serenade will take place in the Cathedral Nave.

Friday 28 June

8.30pm The Great Cloister [Gates open at 7.45pm]

The energy and wit of Bernstein’s Dance Episodes from On the Town contrast with the serenity of Copland’s Quiet City and the powerful emotions of Barber’s Adagio for Strings. From Gershwin we’ll hear the overture to his Broadway hit Girl Crazy and Promenade from the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers film Shall We Dance. Rhapsody in Blue was commissioned by the bandleader Paul Whiteman for his 1924 New York concert An Experiment in Modern Music. Originally scored for solo piano and jazz band, it was an instant hit on its premiere but became more frequently heard in the arrangement for piano and orchestra by Ferde Grofé, the version performed tonight featuring Monet Kaneko as soloist.

Sunday 30 June 7.30pm Shirley Hall

David Bowie A true icon of recent times, David Bowie has possibly had more influence on popular culture than any other solo artist.

MUSIC

The Voice

A constant need to reinvent, explore and investigate, both artistically and personally, led Bowie to produce some wonderfully innovative, influential and enduring music. This year’s King’s Week Show will focus on a selection of songs from his early albums: Space Oddity, Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust with a selection of other well known gems added to the mix. Once again we have an outstanding group of King’s musicians who have fallen under the spell of this unique artist. This is a show not to be missed.

In addition to the Bruckner Mass in E minor, CANTIAQUORUM will open the concert with a side-by-side overture performance with younger members of the School. The concert will be followed by drinks and canapés on Plane Tree Court prepared by our King’s Week Kitchen sixth form chefs.

Saturday 29 June 5.30pm Shirley Hall

The Variety As the title suggests, this event fits the bill of a traditional variety show. Acts will range from singer soloists to piano recitals, magic tricks to short comedy sketches. The Variety will show the spice of life!

The final event of King’s Week opens with Mussorgsky’s Night on a Bare Mountain, in the brilliant arrangement by Rimsky-Korsakov, evoking wild and terrifying supernatural scenes at midsummer on a remote mountainside. Next we’ll hear concerto movements by Kabalevsky and Mendelssohn performed by Kristina Rhodes, Imogen Hinds, Lewis Kennedy and Amy Lovejoy.

MUSIC

Gala Symphony Concert

On the 200th anniversary of the turbulent events at St Peter’s Fields in Manchester, Malcolm Arnold’s powerful Peterloo describes the brutal dispersal by the military of a large but peaceful public meeting and culminates in an uplifting anthem of hope for social justice and a better future. Tchaikovsky’s dramatic 1812 Overture closes the concert. Written to commemorate the successful Russian defence against Napoleon’s army at the Battle of Borodino, it features brass fanfares, church bells and cannon fire; a truly spectacular end to King’s Week 2019.

GREEN COURT

Green Court Finals

Lab on the Lawn

2019 is the 156th anniversary of the first ‘sports day’ at the school; the occasion was the wedding of the Prince of Wales and Princess Alexandra (Tuesday 10 March 1863). For nearly 40 years (weather permitting) the event continued on the Green Court, and references in The Cantuarian show that the longer races were run around the outside: ‘there were nine laps to the mile’. In 2019 we will recreate this atmosphere as members from each house will race in six separate finals (2-3 laps) to compete for the Catterall and Brookes’ silver cups.

This year’s Lab on the Lawn will feature a wide range of science based events including ‘Atomic Cookies’, ‘Fossils and Rocks’, ‘Rockets and Balloons’. There will also be a chance to see Ranger Stu with a number of wonderful animals including owls, tarantulas, snakes and slalamanders. Come, learn and enjoy in our outdoor science lab, suitable for all ages.

3 - 5.15pm Green Court


Under the careful tuition of professional chef Olivia Wacher (OKS), our Sixth Form chefs will undergo a week of intensive training before King’s Week begins. Using the new kitchen in the Social Centre as their base, this year’s student chefs will create four very special evening dinners for the Plane Tree Court, and one fabulous picnic on the Green Court in the shadow of Canterbury Cathedral. All produce will be locally sourced, and a cash bar will be available. Menus for each dinner can be found on the King’s Week website.

Thursday Night Dinner Following the Thursday Night is Music Night concert, why not enjoy a gorgeous Italian meal of prosciutto, venison, fig and butternut squash on Plane Tree Court?
