“Thirty-one students in Year 8 were treated to the world premiere of a musical production on Thursday 16 October at the Assembly Hall in Tunbridge Wells.  Written by two members of the band, the music was performed by The Virgin Soldiers, a six-piece ‘Strock’ (stringed and rock instruments) band, along with a young cast of talented, local singers.  The story of “The Dreamers” was one depicting the bravery of a company of soldiers sent aboard HMS Hythe to fight at Gallipoli in World War One, aptly timed to coincide with the centenary of the start of the Great War.  Along with the dramatic and musical talents of the cast and band, the show also featured narrative from distinguished celebrity readers such as Michael Buerke, Tim Rice and Amanda Redman – an enjoyable evening was had by all.”
