King’s Week 2024

27th June – 3rd July

The Box Office is open



Book your tickets now!


Welcome back to King’s Week and the wealth of events on offer! The theme of this year is to ‘break out of the bubble’ and root the events more in the community. Particularly through the King’s Mile running race, Outside In Fair and a wider variety of old and young spectators, we’re ready to open this well-kept secret to a local audience.

This is an enormous operation, which would not be possible without the help of many people and, this year, I am particularly grateful to my Pupil Creative Assistant, Fumiko. Every pupil in 5th to 6a will also be part of a ‘pupil team’, ushering, teaching, organising or performing and this will teach them a little more about one aspect of event organisation, as well as helping things to run more smoothly.

We have, again, kept those internally-set ticket prices affordable by leaving alcoholic drinks as an optional extra (with the exception of a free drink at The Gala Symphony Concert). Please do choose the correct ticket for pre-orders.

Thank you so much for supporting King’s Week 2024. We look forward to seeing you!

– Florence Walton
