A trip to the Heyday Fest 2022

Last Thursday (April 21st), thanks to Heyday UK and nine children from Paxton, were able to swap their pens and pencils and joined children from 15 other schools across London, including Chesterton and Ravenstone, to attend the British Film Institute (BFI) on the Southbank.

As part of the Heyday Fest, during the Spring term, children in KS2 had written, directed and starred in their very own short film.  The films ranged from comedy, horror to mystery, environmental and documentary.

On the day schools gathered together to watch the premiere of their very own short film. Entitled ‘Inspirational People’ members of the School Council, along with children from Years 5 and 6, witnessed their script brought to life on the big screen.  

Thank you to, Jack, David and Alix from the Heyday team and to Patrick Hutchinson, Bishop Grandison, Jord’s and Superintendent Andy Brittian for their cameo roles!

If you would like to join us to view the film and celebrate the children’s achievement, we will be hosting an event on Friday 27th May at 5:30pm. More information to follow.
