Friday 23rd May 2014 saw the celebration of the Blue Box 10th Birthday party. A week long programme of events for the Chorlton Arts Festival closed in style with the 'Composers and Choreographers' project. The beautiful birthday cake was cut by ex-sudent and Waterloo Road star Tachia Newall, and alumni were invited to catch up with old friends and reminisce about their time at Chorlton High School.
It was particularly poignant to see so many alumni attend and want to be part of the celebrations. It was very clear how much of a part the theatre and the school's Performing Arts status has impacted on their lives. For some it was fundamental, having subsequently exceeded in companies such as The Rambert Dance Company in London and for some it complimented their academic success as they shared University and career success stories.
