King’s Week 2023

29th June – 5th July

King’s Week 2023 has been and gone. Please feel free to browse the site to see what happened and check back here later in the year for KW24!



Thursday 27th June – Wednesday 3rd July


Welcome to King’s Week 2023 and the nearly 200 events on offer! It has been incredible to see the enthusiasm and new ideas that have come forward since our ‘reboot’ last year after the pandemic. The pupil-only morning events will remain and the popular Cultural Fair is now open to visitors. Tea House Show, Il Bar Italia, K-pop Dance and Classical Excerpts have joined Café Théâtre in showcasing the talent and heritage of different cultures within the School. Further, we have new pupil performances in Trapeze Act and The Magic Show. The ‘pupil only’ category has expanded significantly, particularly in the evenings with Traitors, Sundowners in the Cellarer’s and the Silent Disco.

You may be surprised to see that ticket prices have, in some cases, been reduced! The aim is to make prices affordable by separating the drinks price and allowing you to buy these separately should you so desire.

I am always hugely indebted to so many people and, this year, also the pupil assistants Alison (administrative), Syl (creative) and Sam (front of house) who have joined the team.

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

It was surprisingly fun being able to perform…as I expected to be much more nervous
