Bugsy Malone Lights Up the Stage

Oldbury Wells raised the roof with an exciting and hugely successful production of Bugsy Malone on 4th-6th July. Transporting the audience to 1929 New York City, Bugsy Malone captured the flashy world of would-be hoodlums, showgirls and dreamers with a whole lot of ‘splurge’ enjoyed along the way.

Remembering Local WWI Soldiers

Students took part in World War 1 memorial services at St Nicholas Church in Oldbury Village this week. The memorial services marked the end of a project that we have been doing with Year 8 pupils. Pupils have been finding out about local people who lived in Oldbury Village during the war and what happened to some of the soldiers. Local historians, Graham Jones and Ann Walter, helpfully provided documents and newspaper cuttings from archives to make the project a very special and local one. To read the full story, click here.
