Before setting off for half term, Mowden children, staff and parents were treated to Year 8’s blend of mystery, myth, mix-up, meddling and mistaken identity in the form of their own play, “Mystery at Southend.” Intersepersed with beautiful renditions of songs from, or inspired by life in Essex, the players did their best to dispell any negative ideas about the south-east county and its inhabitants.
