An Evening in Tribute to Barnaby Webber

July 4 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

On Thursday 4th July, Taunton School and the Webber family are hosting an event to remember Barney Webber (OT 2006-2022, Marshall). Barney’s tragic death in June 2023 continues to impact those who knew and loved him, as well as those touched by the brutal circumstances of his death and the Webbers continued fight for justice.

Together with the Webber family, Emma, Dave and Charlie, the School will host an event that promises to be an uplifting and celebratory evening of food and entertainment that will raise money to create a permanent memorial to Barney’s life here at Taunton School. Our plans include the renaming and refurbishment of the School’s iconic Memorial Cricket Pavilion, which will become the ‘The Webber Pavilion’ in Barney’s honour. You can read more about this tribute and donate directly to the project via our JustGiving page here.

“It is a great honour to have the pavilion named after Barney.

Barney spent 16 glorious years at Taunton School. From his first day in ‘First Steps One’ through to Year 13 in his beloved Marshall, he loved (almost) every single moment. There isn’t a part of Taunton School that doesn’t echo for us with memories of him, but the cricket pavilion was especially important. It’s where he enjoyed countless hours and we will always picture our beautiful son there. We are so proud of all that he achieved during his time and also for the legacy he leaves. 

The whole school community has become a huge source of support to us all, and in particular for his brother Charlie. We cannot express in words the enormity of the grief we feel at the loss of Barney; but we are determined to let his light shine on”.
