Evers & Davis House Evening 2024

Published 26 February 2024

Before half term, Evers and Davis Houses regaled us with a plethora of fabulous performances in their annual House Evening.

From Elodie and Lenka who began the evening dancing to ‘Rolling in the Deep’, to Andrea Wong stunning everyone with her Chopin rendition on the piano and the Year 9 students’ alternative “Romeo and Juliet” sketch, it was clear that there is a lot of talent in Evers and Davis.

One of the highlights of the evening for many was the 7D1 Lip Sync Battle in which we saw students competing against teachers and staff. The Evers and Davis team were joined by Assistant Head Teacher, Miss Thorne, amusing us with their Spice Girls performance, complete with costumes.

Several other tutor groups also performed en masse, including 7E1 with their ‘Dragons’ Den’ sketch, 8D3’s rap and 7E2&3 joined together to present ‘Call me Maybe”.

Amongst the many musical acts we heard from a jazz group who brilliantly performed the standard ‘Take Five”, Callum and Eleanor with a soulful ‘Just the two of us’ and group ‘White Noise’ rounded of the evening with an energetic Blur medley that many of the students joined them on the floor to bounce along to.

Well done to the Evers and Davis teams for putting on such a great evening. Thanks also to Mr Weller and supporting students for their sound, lighting and backstage expertise. Finally, thank you to all who attended and helped raise more than £700 for the House Charities, West Berkshire Mencap and Swings & Smiles.
