Youth Theatre outing to West Norwood Cemetery

The theme for the Saturday drama classes this term is ‘spooky stories‘ and Gothic plays. To coincide with this, the Youth groups (13 to 18 year olds) were treated to a guided tour of West Norwood cemetery, run by The Friends of the Cemetery. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon as the youth theatre members were shown around the cemetery and learned about the history and famous people buried there, all while gaining inspiration for exploring the Gothic genre.
