In Time of Lockdown: Reflections on Locks, Lockdown, Isolation
Beethoven in Lockdown
A special pupil publication devoted to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth was conceived during the first summer lockdown in 2020. Arguably there was no one more appropriate to celebrate as Beethoven was famously in a forced isolation for much of his life. Pupils from all year groups and beaks from many departments were involved in the writing, editing and illustrations for this project.
Piccalilli magazine was set up in 2002 by a group of Sixth Form creative writing enthusiasts who wanted to showcase the best of Marlborough pupils’ poetry and prose. Since 2006, when it was first professionally printed, the magazine has been published twice each year, in a winter and summer edition. As well as poetry and prose fiction, Piccalilli now includes artwork, prose non-fiction, interviews and reviews.
