Celebrating ’40’ with a New Show

Join us to celebrate Cardinal Newman turning 40!

‘Larks Ascending’ is a brand new show, a completely original musical to mark 40 years of Cardinal Newman. Written by Performing Arts teacher Lee Johnson and starring a cast of our Performing Arts students, charting the amalgamation of three schools to become the Cardinal Newman College that we know and love.

It follows the lives and loves of the first ever Newman students during their first term at the new college. As each of them face their own challenges and try to find their place in the world, they find escape in friendship, music, dance, art and the odd night out at Warehouse.

The music comes in the shape of popular songs from the 1970s, with performances ranging from artists such as Blondie, E.L.O, ABBA, Madness, The Undertones, Fleetwood Mac, the Carpenters, The Sex Pistols and Kate Bush.

Tickets are available from Cardinal Newman College Finance Office and through Wisepay, and tickets cost £7 or £5 for concessions. The show will take place in the Newman Theatre from Wednesday 6th March – Friday 8th March 2019, curtain up is 7pm.
