In August 2019 I organized and carried out a recreation of the 1966 film The Great St Trinian’s Train Robbery at a privately owned railway station in Gotherington, Gloucestershire. After that, I thought it would be a great idea to shoot in London and visit the locations with a group of girls to perform our take on the modern-day movies of St. Trinian’s. This project took 13 months to plan and was postponed on three occasions, then on Sunday 13 September 2020, the girls marched on to the quiet streets of London. 

The girls are a mixture of friends and actresses, some of whom have appeared on stage and screen. Each character had their own identity and it was crucial to keep the theme in line with the films that came out in 2007 and 2009. The hockey sticks were kindly donated by Tewkesbury School. The whole project cost just under £1000.
