He was joined by make-up artist, Grace Kingsley, who also worked on the drama which was filmed in Clevedon.

As special guests at the event, they both gave an interesting insight into how they have developed their careers. Bristol-born Joe also ran a drama workshop with year 12 students who were also joined by pupils from Gordano and St Katherine’s schools.

The new building at the Valley Road school will be for pupils in years 12 and 13 to enjoy.
