Three choices …. one destiny! So goes the title of Cockermouth school’s performance in this year’s Rock Challenge event at the Sands Centre in Carlisle tonight.
The school have always presented our company with interesting projects, be it Polka dot jerseys for their ‘King of the Mountain’, Gingerbread Men T-Shirts or, in this case ‘The face of Death’. The most pleasing thing about this year’s design was that it allowed us to try out a new product – the ‘Glow in the Dark’ garment film – on the front of their Rock Challenge T-Shirts. We hope that it has had the necessary effect for them at tonight’s performance.
Although the school have been involved in the show tonight, they were not competing against the other schools in this event, as they are one of the premier ‘Showcase’ schools in the competition. The ‘real’ event for them is to be staged at Grimsby Auditorium on Saturday 23rd June against one of our ‘local’ teams, Peterhead Academy, who are another of the ‘elite’ premier schools. They are, however, eligible for other awards that are given at the Carlisle event for various aspects of their performance.
The photo above has been with us for a couple of days as it was taken during rehearsals, but we have been sworn to secrecy until after tonight’s performance about the ‘Death Puppet’, so have been unable to post it until now.
We hope to get a full report from our two spies (Amanda and Natalie) about the Cockermouth performance in the near future, along with details of how you can help support them in the ‘Race for Life’ event in June!
News has just come through that West Lakes Academy has just won tonight’s event, so many congratulations to them! We hope that they might like to use us for their T-Shirts next year….just a thought!!
