Anna Scher has taught the likes of Kathy Burke, Pauline Quirke and Phil Daniels since opening her Islington drama school in 1968.

It’s been a landmark year for the theatre as Mrs Scher received an MBE from the Queen in October for her services to drama.

She celebrated with current students at a small party at Saint Silas Church Pentonville, Penton Street on Friday.

“After 46 years every day is still special,” said Mrs Scher.
