Virgin Media has wrapped up some incredible prizes for UK primary schools this Christmas – including £5,000 and an unforgettable experience from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock the Musical.
Virgin Media is on the hunt for the UK’s best primary school Christmas play! The winning school will work with TV presenter, Stephen Mulhern, who will join the children live on stage and narrate their play in a one-off performance. It will be professionally filmed and made available, via On Demand, to four million Virgin TV customers in the run up to Christmas.
Virgin Media is offering a sleigh-full of prizes, including £5,000 for the winning school!
Courtesy of Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit West End show, School of Rock the Musical, a class from the winning school will be invited to the Gillian Lynne Theatre in London for an electric, rip-roaring performance masterclass from the cast.
To keep the Christmas spirit going, School of Rock the Musical will generously give the winning school 10 ukuleles so they can keep strumming first-class performances well into the next decade.
And, as it’s the season of goodwill, there are plenty of prizes on offer for the runner up school and 22 regional finalists. The runner up school will win £1,000 plus 15 ukuleles, while 22 regional finalists will win £100 and 2 ukuleles each.
Have we got a school in Aberconwy who can win? Here are some of the things that Virgin Media want to see.
Your show can be a traditional nativity or a brand new tale with dancing elves and reindeers – or anything in between! You can also enter one of the fantastic festive shows available from Out of the Ark Music.
The production should have a script and be between 30 and 60 minutes long. The winning performance will be filmed at the winning school between Monday 2 December and Friday 13 December 2019.
Virgin Media is asking primary schools to write, in no more than 150 words about why your school's Christmas play should be made available to four million Virgin TV customers this Christmas and to provide a short synopsis of the play. Please also upload an image or photograph promoting your Christmas play. It could be a photo of the cast at first rehearsal, or perhaps a poster designed to promote the production.
You will need to enter via the official online entry form, please see the link below. The competition closes at 11.59pm on Tuesday 19th November 2019.
