Our congratulations to the cast and crew on yet another incredible drama production. 

Pupils, parents, staff, friends and family were treated to a thrilling, fast-paced adaptation of the classic story by Erich Kastner on the opening night of Emil and The Detectives, and taken on an adventure of a lifetime by the talented actors from Bedford Prep School, Bedford Girls’ School and Bedford School.  

Ian Silk, Bedford Prep School Headmaster, was full of praise for the production, saying, 

“Emil and the Detectives is an excellent show. The acting is superb, with a clever, multi-media set and imaginative use of the whole stage area. Upper School boys work really well with Bedford Girls’ School girls and Prep School boys to create a comic and gripping piece of drama.

A must see!”



We will be filming the Friday night showing of the production, so keep your eyes peeled for the video in the near future.
