Driffield School went back in time for a spectacular 80s fundraising event.

In preparation for the forthcoming musical production of “The Wedding Singer”, the Performing Arts Dept staff and students held an event in the spirit of the 80s with all proceeds from the night going towards production costs.

The Fun Night consisted of 80s fancy dress and an 80s quiz, along with 80s music and dancing and nostalgic refreshments from the era.

Everyone threw themselves into the spirit of the event and among the many extravagant costumes were a Ghost Buster, the Mario Brothers and even a Rubik’s Cube! The evening’s music was provided by aspiring student performers Sam Trueman and Scott Morrison, who covered many 80s classics as well as songs they’d written themselves.

The quiz itself involved an 80s smash hits music round, a dance round, general 80s knowledge and a video round in which the teams had to observe and remember scenes from the epic 1985 movie “Back to the Future”.

The dance round had teachers and students busting a few classic 80s moves and soon the winning team was announced. Another fun twist to the night was that each team was named after famous 80s icons. The worthy winning team, “Spandau Ballet”, saw off the challenge from their opponents “Whitney Huston”, “The Bangles” and “WHAM” and collected their trophy on stage.

All round, everyone had great fun, a fab 80s flash-back and raised all-important funds for the up-coming “must see” school musical production!
