Shenstock XIII - 2007



Shenstock 2007

CENTRE STAGE, CHARITY GIG FOR SHENFIELD HIGH SCHOOL

Shenstock is the Indie/Rock concert in which the students in Lower and Upper Sixth form preform songs from their favorite artists in aid of charity. Shenstock is in its 13th year and its still buzzing, Mad, and Rocking. Crazed Students rocking out on stage, causing ear drums to burst, heads to bob up and down, and people to cheer excesively loud.... WHICH IS WHAT WE LIKE!!!!

I traveled down to my old school to see Shenstock. This has been my 3rd year in which i go to see it, and i can say it has been a fun and enjoyable evening. I take my hat off to the guys at shenfield as theyve put a lot of hard work in this year to raise as much as possible. Some of the acts i saw tonight were truely unforgettable, such as Electric Uncle Sam... imagine a guy screaming at the top of his lungs with a huge novelty hat on and then frantically jumping about on stage... thats my idea of an entertainer! Also i loved the acts by Rob, this fellow has the best afro i have ever seen!!! his renditions of Red Hot Chili Peppers "Cant Stop" and The Killers "Mr. Brightside" were amazing, so much charisma!

Gregg Brooks and his band played an almighty preformance doing there version of "For Whom the Bells Toll" made famous by Metallica. I can honestly say everyone who played part in Shenstock deserves a massive pat on the back for an unstoppable show and Showing everyone a great time.

At this point i would like to write about the more serious note in which shenfield took, and this is the part where i want to talk to you about the Charity which Shenfield Students Played for...

 

At Farleigh Hospice they care for people with cancer and other life limiting illnesses. At a time when it can feel that nothing may be the same again they are there to help. They recognise that their patients not only experience physical symptoms, but also have social, emotional and spiritual needs. They are there for the patient and also their families and friends.

The death of Audrey Appleton from cancer in 1981 provided the catalyst for the creation of Farleigh Hospice. Her friends, Glenda Lance and Dr. Gill Collier, launched an appeal to establish hospice services in and around Chelmsford. A steering committee was formed and the charity was registered in 1982.

Well done to all those who participated in Shenstock this year (All names below) And hopefully thell be rocking out again next year!!!
