Rock on the Terrace

Parents' Association

Members of the Trent Parents’ Association had been nervously checking the weather reports in the weeks and days leading up to the Rock on the Terrace event – “what if it rains” at the back of everyone’s minds!  However we should have known better – even the weather had been successfully booked, as Friday turned into a glorious evening, ready to welcome all to the front lawns of Trent College.

Parents, families and friends arrived laden with picnics, chairs and rugs, as well as something chilled to sip, either searching out friends on Trent’s gently sloping lawns, or just enjoying the time to relax with family.  The live music started with Harriet, which provided a gentle backdrop as everyone tucked into their picnics – whether they be from the burger vans on site, Domino’s pizza or lovingly home crafted affairs.

Tom Singleton did a great job of compering the evening.  It was lovely to see all ages enjoying the grounds of Trent, as the children had a fabulous time playing games on the field, exploring around the trees or just working some of their energy off on the bouncy castles, whilst the adults basked in the sun and chatted happily listening to the music.

Then the main event started – Abba Fever.  They looked the part and sounded the part, and whilst initially the audience were a bit shy it didn’t take long for the audience to start boogying to the favourite tunes of Abba – often to the embarrassment of the children! 

It was a great evening – and before we knew it, it was time to pack up!  Rock on the Terrace provided a fantastic start to the Whitsun Half Term.
