Musical Festival in the Abbey – June 24th-26th-28th July

At this Festival, as at the former one, the whole school had seats in the Abbey. These seats were in the Quoir, and from them little or nothing of the company could be seen, but the music was heard to great advantage. We took our seats at about half past eleven, and the music ended at a little after four.
