Last Stop Dalkeith!

P6 have successfully just finished the Greatrex experience. On behalf of P6 we would like to say a big, big very big thank you to everyone who put their time and effort into this performance. It has been amazing to work with Queen Margaret’s University performance team, a special mention to Matt Dunn who wrote and perfected the script. We would also like to say a big thank you to Mrs Rice because without her support the show would not have been the same. The show went really well and Matt never stopped getting phone calls afterwards about how it was the best performance ever.

The Greatrex performance will never be forgotten!
