Talented young drama students got to hone their skills at a half-term workshop.

The Youth Music Theatre Academy ran for three days last week at Gordano School in Portishead.

West End professionals were on hand to help coach the children, with the sessions suitable for youngsters aged eight to 18. Jonny Purchase, from the cast of Les Miserables, was there to offer advice on the second day.

The children also got to take part in Matilda and Wicked workshops too.
