Talented youngsters showed off their acting talents at this year’s three-day Peterborough Drama Festival.
More than 600 youngsters took to the stage to demonstrate their reading, acting and improvisation skills in front of adjudicators Priscilla Morris, Keith Ralph and Jonathan Owen.
With 55 trophies available, there were many opportunities for pupils to earn success.
The event was held at Dogsthorpe Infant School and Dogsthorpe Academy from Friday to Sunday.
Organisers even believe the festival could be the largest in the country as it is so well attended.
Stars of the festival included Heritage Park Primary School pupil Thisath Kularatna, who won his trophy for sight reading, and actor Daisy Reeves Turner, from the Peterborough School, who triumphed in multiple events.
Owen Wilkinson from Deeping St James Primary was another multiple winner after coming out on top in the verse speaking and story telling.
Heritage Park student Matthew Jima, meanwhile, was the winner at prose reading for his year group, as was Chelsea Mwatsenekenyi in the year above.
Festival committee member Gill Warren said: “It went very well.
“The standard is fantastic and the adjudicators give them tips as well as scoring them.”
