EGS Choir performed at the Enfield Music Service Choir Festival this week.
They performed two songs they’ve been rehearsing and then sung alongside four other primary and secondary Enfield schools as part of one huge choir!
The boys did fantastically and we’re very much looking forward to the next one.
Wishing a posthumous happy birthday to Enfield Grammar School ‘old boy’ and ‘king of horror’, Boris Karloff, who would have been 136 today!
We are inviting ‘Old Boys’ (our alumni) to a Jingle & Mingle reunion event in December …….let’s hope Boris (William) doesn’t choose to attend!
Born William Pratt on the 23rd of November 1887, he attended EGS from 1891, and was the first man to play Frankenstein’s Monster on film.
He went on to star in over eighty Hollywood movies including “The Mummy” (1931), “The Mask of Fu Manchu” (1932), “The Bride of Frankenstein” (1935), “Isle of the Dead” (1945), “The Body Snatcher” (1945), Black Sabbath(1963), The Raven(1963) and of course Abbott and Costello Meet Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1953).
