A Dragon tale
We’re delighted to share our premier Dragon QUEST Production with you, created by our very own Dragons as part of our award-winning extra-curricular enrichment programme, Dragon QUEST.
From Grandpa’s pyjamas through to the cobwebs on the beams, our young filmmakers sketched costumes, tested camera angles, dressed the set, and even featured themselves! Please support their efforts by watching it and sharing it with your family and friends.
Inspired by Grandpa’s treasured marble, and the magic memories it recalls, we’ve created a limited edition bag of Dragon Marbles, so that you too can gift #APresentFromThePast. Plus, we’re donating all profits from the sales of our Dragon Marbles to our Transformational Bursary Programme, so that the past, and present, can help the future.*

Our premier Dragon QUEST Production was created by Dragons for Dragons. From Grandpa’s pyjamas through to the cobwebs on the beams, our Dragon QUEST filmmakers sketched costumes, tested camera angles, dressed the set, and even featured themselves! The film starred the brilliant Grandpa Peter Bowles (OD 1970) and his granddaughter Sofia (Pre-Prep), but wait … was that … it can’t be? Ma Da?

This year’s music was written and performed by William Morris, Head of Music, accompanied by Jonny Race on guitar, Joff Morgan on percussion and David Smith on clarinet. It incorporated the Dragon Song, Carmen Draconiense, with words written by Frank Sidgwick (OD 1893, Current Great-Grandparent) first sung in the Summer of 1900 at the Dragon Sing Song. The Music was composed by Colin Campbell Taylor (OD 1896) who became a professional Musician and composer. This was his first published piece of music. The Carmen is still sung in the annual Dragon Sing Song and the volume always rises as the last verse is reached.
