Pop band to deliver anti drugs message

sibford_school_the_paradesPupils at Sibford School will be ending their first half term of 2014 with a concert featuring up and coming pop band, The Parades.

The band, who last year supported Mcfly and performed at the Isle Of Wight Festival, are currently in the middle of an anti drugs themed school tour around the UK on behalf of DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education).

The concert will take place on Friday 14 February in what would normal be the pupils’ PHSE session.

Simon Baker of Sibford School said: “We thought this would be an excellent way to send the pupils off on their half term break. They will get a fantastic performance from the band, which will be followed by presentation stressing the importance of making the right decisions in life and living a healthy lifestyle.”

The Parades, who originate from Reading, are Dan Bartlett, Andy Burge and Callum Walton. After forming in 2012 under the name ‘We Struck Lucky’, the boys started to write and record their own material. In February 2013, they changed their name to The Parades after working alongside the clothes company ‘Jack Wills’ putting on acoustic performances at stores across the country.
