Music Maker comes to St Peter’s to speak to our Sixth Form

Mike Hurst

As part of their broader programme, the Sixth Form enjoy an occasional series of visiting speakers. This week Mike Hurst – who with The Springfields enjoyed success with hit singles on both sides of the Atlantic and produced Marc Bolan and Cat Stevens – came to meet them.

Mike entertained the Sixth Form with a history of popular music from Greensleves to today, perched on a stool at the front of the Hall illustrating his points on his guitar with a wide range of songs. The talk was interactive and hugely enjoyed by the Sixth Form who readily answered his questions and sang along to some of the music.

Many thanks to Ben Fuller, Head of Politics, for this report.
