Hillview Festival of the Arts, fondly knows as ‘Hillfest’ will be held on July 21st, celebrating an incredible year of talent and success across the wider spectrum of the Arts: from the Performing and Visual Arts into creative writing, poetry and media.
This event will celebrate everything that we do so well at Hillview on an even larger scale and bring the extended Hillview community together. In light of cuts in funding to the arts and regardless of the government’s drive to lessen the Arts focus by making continued cuts to the subject areas, which impact schools and students greatly, we want to showcase the huge amount of talent that our students have and the enormous importance of these subjects to their futures.
We are determined that they will remain and be central to who we are now and in the future.
Hillfest will feature an Art & Fashion Gallery, Media tent and hugely exciting full size outdoor stage, where our students (Dance, drama, singing, instrumental and cheerleading) will perform to around 1200 visitors throughout the event. There will be merchandise (including the Hillview CD) and food vendors including wood fired pizza, a hog roast and an ice cream van!
