Beau stars in Poldark

We’ve noticed that the Lloyds Bank television Black Raven K H Day 2010  (161)advert has been shown again in the last week or so.

Did you know that lovely, sleek black stallion that appears in it is Beau, who comes to King Harold Day and enchants young and old alike.

He really is a star.   This week he has been down in Cornwall filming the next series of Poldark.   

If the weather has allowed filming to progress to the finish, then he’ll be at King Harold Day, with his usual rider, The Black Raven Knight.    Well, let’s hope filming has gone well so we can enjoy having Beau with us once again.

It’s King Harold Day on Saturday (10th October) in the lovely Abbey Gardens at Waltham Abbey, EN9 1XQ.

First school signs up for Art Exhibition

The first school has signed up for the King Harold Day Schools’ ArtWHX Primary School Exhibition, and we are delighted to welcome the new Waltham Holy Cross Primary School, which readers will know as the former separate Infant and Junior Schools.

The two Waltham Holy Cross schools have been with us from our very first year, twelve years ago, and have produced some outstanding work.   We look forward to seeing what they come up with this year.
