Festival of Tomorrow  

The Festival of Tomorrow has many locations throughout the February half term week.  The two public days are held at The Wichelstowe Trinity Learning Campus which encompasses the Deanery CE Academy and Kingfisher CE Academy on the Friday and Saturday. 

What's on !

Wichelstowe Trinity Learning Campus has the most amazing facilities that can be hired out.  We have a Sport England specification sports hall and floodlit all weather pitch, as well as other sporting and non-sporting facilities.

The Deanery Theatre which is state-of-the-art, holds an audience capacity of over 430 (tiered seating) and additional spaces for wheelchairs.  The Deanery Theatre can also convert into a hall, we simply push the tiered seating against the back wall and this create a superb space for Dances, Balls, Conferences, Presentation events, Wedding receptions, (this list is endless).   Todate, we have held theatre shows by local Performing Arts Companies, Wilkes Academy of Performing Arts,  Southampton Youth Concert, The Rock Choir, Christmas Panto organised by Thames Water.   In 2019 and 2023 we had BBC Question Time with presenter Fiona Bruce.  Since 2022  we have had the amazing Festival of Tomorrow  with a fantastic array of science talks, shows, panels, exhibitors for a full two days for families to enjoy during the February half term.
