The languages department's German Cultural evening started the final week of the Michaelmas term on a beautifully festive note on 11 December, with guests enjoying a traditional Bockwurst and Brötchen, Glühwein and Stollen. Throughout the evening, pupils from the Prep and Senior School performed a variety of Christmas songs, such as Tannenbaum, Stille Nacht and Weiße Weihnacht, as well as poetry by Rainer Marie Rilke and Alex Sergel. No German evening would be complete without a Christmas market, which enabled guests to put a few finishing (or starting?) touches to their Christmas shopping. A magical time was had by all.
