Please note Road Changes:
For three months from 14th Feb, Roman Road, (the old Shrewsbury Bypass going past the School), is being dug up to replace the water main.
Please check current diversion information at stw.works/weepingcrossSTW or 0800 521660

25 April: 
The roadworks on Roman Road have moved to the stretch immediately past Shrewsbury School.  It is a one-way system from the Longden Road roundabout to Porthill roundabout.  Access to side roads etc should be OK.   This will be going on for the next three weeks or so, then move to the next stretch west.

Access to Kennedy and Ashton Roads can be gained from Longden Road/ Luciefeld Road/ Kingsland Road (Kennedy Road).  There is no longer access across the School site from Ashton Road to Port Hill


Following the performance of Verdi's Requiem in Birmingham on Sunday 28th February (see review below), our next events will be:

  • a performance of Haydn's Nelson Mass in the English Haydn Festival in Bridgnorth on Sunday 12th June; and
  • a Concert of light choral music from operas and shows, on Saturday 25th June

VERDI REVIEW:

“As an example of corporate music-making, this concert must surely rank as the finest ever put on by the School.”

".....the choir summoned up a volume that was the personification of wrath, shattering in effect, yet never coarse in tone. Throughout the work, they proved capable of inspiring awe, be it fierce and threatening or quietly spiritual......"

Please see review of our Verdi Requiem performance on 28 February
