    Festival Statue

    In 2001 the School ran a competition for the design of a new statue to be erected in the piazza in front of the Bridge House Theatre and Guy Nelson Hall. This was won by James Payne aged 13 (WS 1995-06), who created the design ‘Festival’.

    The Governors of Warwick School commissioned sculptor Matthew Lane Sanderson to sculpt James’s design. On 3rd September 2001 James had the honour of unveiling Matthew Lane Sanderson’s creation.

    This statue is much loved and enjoyed by everyone, with boys today saying it depicts the spirit of the school, giving a feeling of happiness and community spirit.
