Pupils from the Anthony Curton School in Walpole St Peter and Tilney All Saints Primary School enjoyed a joint visit to Drury Lane in the heart of London’s theatre district to watch a performance of Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’

The children, who attend the two sister schools, and enjoy frequent joint visits, were overawed by the popular show’s special effects and costumes.

Executive Head Teacher, Mrs Anne Senior, said, “For many of our children, it was their first trip to London, as well as their first live theatre experience. They were just as excited seeing the famous London landmarks on the coach journey through the city.”

Six-year-old Rheanna Mason said: “It was brilliant,” and Henry Fraser, also six, said: “My favourite bit was when Charlie got the golden ticket.”
