Members of our Junior School choir, Headmaster George Hartley and other representatives of King’s were beaming with pride today as they took part in HRH The Queen and The Duchess of Sussex’s visit to Chester, to officially open Storyhouse.
After being welcomed to the city by cheering crowds, HRH The Queen and The Duchess observed a minute’s silence for victims of The Grenfell Tower fire, before being taken on a tour of the cultural centre.
Our choir joined other local primary schools in performing a piece entitled ‘Drop in the ocean’ for the VIP guests and Mr Hartley was deeply honoured to attend a civic lunch at Chester Town Hall.
HRH The Queen unveiled a plaque to celebrate the official opening of Storyhouse to the delight of our pupils and other invited guests.
A truly incredible day, full of special memories which will last a lifetime!
