The School was invited to contribute to a special award ceremony on Saturday night as part of Hertsmere Council’s annual Civic Dinner.

Hosted by the serving mayor, Councillor Martin Worster, the event was an opportunity to reward local volunteers and showcase local talent, and was attended by local councillors, dignitaries and community members.  

The Purcell School was represented by 10-piece soul band, The Delegates, who performed a set that included arrangements of:

In The Stone/September – Earth Wind and Fire
Isn’t She Lovely – Stevie Wonder
Shake Your Body Down to the Ground – Michael Jackson
Love is a Losing Game – Amy Winehouse
Let’s Groove Tonight – Earth Wind and Fire

Councillor Martin Worster commented “Saturday night was fantastic!  The band were absolutely amazing…. The Purcell School did us proud.”
