Happy Holidays!

Southampton Airport’s heart-warming Christmas video was created with the help of local music, acting and film-making communities – including five Barton Peveril students who provided the backing track.

WEB-Eugenie-and-the-LampsThe film follows several passengers through emotional seasonal reunions at the airport and features an exclusive new Christmas song, Happy Holidays, written by Upper Shirley High pupil Abigail Caveney (14).

Abigail’s sister, Lydia, and fellow Barton Peveril students Ella Clark, Rowan Thorne, Ben Cartwright and James Warren formed a new band – Eugenie and the Lamps – to help Abigail record her song in a studio prior to filming at the airport.

Students from Solent Creatives produced the video – the third year they have been commissioned to provide a festive feel good factor.
