The eagerly anticipated Pre-prep Christmas Show: Honky Tonky Donkey! took place on the last week of the Autumn Term. For many it was their first Christmas Show with a live audience at Duke of Kent School, for others it was their first Christmas show ever!
Pupils delighted their parents and siblings with joyous singing and enchanting dance moves, as we followed the story of the Honky Tonky Donkey on his journey, alongside Mary and Joseph, to Bethlehem.
As may or may not have been expected, at various points along the route they encountered a duo of fierce soldiers, shepherds warming themselves by a fire, a reluctant but pliable inn keeper and his wife, some endearing farm yard animals, a host of majestic angels and three very wise men! Our Year 2 narrators did a superb job of guiding us through the events and meetings, telling a previously unheard perspective of the renowned Nativity story.
