More than 400 proud parents, carers and teachers watched on as youngsters from a Highbury special needs school performed their winter show last week.
Children aged five to 19 from Samuel Rhodes School in Highbury New Park took part in the production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The performance, which featured all 125 pupils, took place at the nearby Highbury Grove school as it has a bigger hall that could meet the demand.
Headteacher Julie Keylock said: “It was packed out. There were lots of very proud parents. The show went really well – it’s all about the children and about them having the opportunity to perform.”
Julie gave special mention to Chelsea Taylor-Day, assistant head and director of the play.
