The Glee Club was founded in 2012 and from small beginnings has really become a vibrant and exciting vocal and dramatic performance ensemble. The group is based at the Hayling College and is made up of College students aged from 11-16. The Glee Club regularly perform for and in the local community and are particularly busy around Christmas time.

We were delighted to be able to perform our original song “Poppies” not only for South Today but also for Prince Charles when he visited the Island last year for the COPP memorial on the seafront. We were unfortunately not able to go on our planned visit to the Menin Gate in Belgium because of various challenges out of our control but the Royal performance more than made up for that.

The Club now has a thriving 36 student membership which includes crew and technical support. This is just the right amount to tackle our latest adventure. The Glee Club will be raising money for local charities with their first theatre production show. With the support of, and raising money for, the Hayling Island Businessmen’s Club, the Glee Club will be performing the review show “West End Spectacular” at the Station Theatre Hayling Island on 28 May 2016. The show has been specially written for the club in the form of a musical revue, featuring four of the most popular West End shows of recent years. With sections from “Joseph”, “Oliver”, “Grease” and “Les Miserables” the show will be a fabulous event for all the family to enjoy. We are playing a matinee performance on the Saturday afternoon with concessions for children, and also an evening performance on the same day. Tickets are available from the station theatre box office and also online from their webpage.

The Hayling College Glee Club are available for all types of events and even this specific show can be used for local club cabaret events and fund raisers.  For further information about the Hayling College Glee Club please mail Neil Ogley at neil.ogley@hayling.hants.sch.com and look forward to meeting you all at the Station Theatre.
