Just in time for twelfth night, with Christmas seeming such a long time ago, here are some pictures taken at Moor Allerton’s 1961 nativity play.

Today is the last day of term and parents, staff and pupils have been enjoying the end of term assemblies and productions. The school is gearing up for something quite spectacular for the summer term production to celebrate the centenary. But let’s take this chance to look back over 75 years to the kind of show the Moor Allerton of the 1930s put on at Christmas.

Remember, in those days, Moor Allerton was a boys-only school, so the lads had to dress up as lasses if the role required!

There’s not too much with a Christmas focus in the school archive, so if you have any photos, videos, programmes or any materials relating to Christmas at Moor Allerton over the decades, please let us have it to add to our history of the school.

Happy Christmas!

Moor Allerton School Production 1933We are sure you all enjoyed the end-of-term spectacular production at Stockport Plaza earlier this month.

Throughout the summer break, we are continuing to scan and upload items from the school archive, and we’ve just come across this fascinating picture of the school production from exactly 80 years ago, in 1933!

We doubt you’ll have photos older than this, but if you have a any photos, videos or examples of programmes from Moor Allerton school productions from any period in the last hundred years, we’d love to have them for the site.
