Headlands Community: The great Bridlington Cultural Exchange

Our Story

Headlands School, partnered with Bridlington Spa, are ensuring that the ‘City of Culture’ and its many opportunities reaches our town.

We want you to be part of this unique opportunity, targeted at inviting inspiring and diverse artists to Bridlington and creating a multi-cultural influx to our coastal town.

Young people at Headlands School have been fundraising tirelessly for over a year for our sister School - Sibelius High in Cape Town. They are keen to take on this project and to take responsibility for how and where their money is spent to further their understanding of life as a teenager in South Africa.

In February 2016 a group of students and teachers spent a week at the School in Cape Town to see what a difference our fundraising had made so far. We all had a life changing experience and experienced a rich exchange of culture and diversity took place.

So, the next challenge for our students is to bring South Africa to our town and community. We plan to hold a fundraising event featuring exclusive performance acts, a three course meal and the opportunity to hear from our students about what they experienced and their plans for fundraising in our community. The event will be held at the Bridlington Spa on the evening of Thursday 22 September with tables of 10 available for £275, which includes the meal and all of the entertainment.

Our aim is to bring students from Sibelius School to Headlands School in October 2016. We want the experience of this exchange to ripple through our community, heightening awareness and increasing life chances.

Help us make sure Bridlington is an extension of the ‘City of Culture’ and put ourselves on the map as a cultural centre of excellence by joining us at our event at the Bridlington Spa on Thursday 22 September.
