The Quarry Theatre at St. Luke’s officially opened its doors on Friday 26th June 2015.

Guests including Governors, Old Bedfordians and friends of the School, along with representatives of all the organisations involved in the fantastic development project joined together to celebrate the opening of The Quarry Theatre at St. Luke’s. 

Throughout the evening, the many individuals, staff and businesses who contributed to the remarkable transformation of the historic former Moravian chapel were recognised and congratulated. 

Special thanks were given to Gareth Quarry (68-77) and his wife Jill for sharing the School’s vision, committing to the project in its early stages and helping to transform this historic building.  Fittingly, the couple along with a number of members of the Quarry Family, some who had been members of the congregation at St Luke’s, were present to celebrate the next chapter for the former church.

The Lord Lieutenant, Mrs Helen Nellis, who officially opened the theatre, congratulated the school on the wonderful new space that has been created for the performing arts. She highlighted what an important asset the facility will be for the local community and how it would help to continue to develop the school’s links within the town and region.

To complete the celebration, guests enjoyed a very powerful production of Shakespeare’s’ Henry V, put on by the school’s talented actors, aged from fourteen to seventeen.
