Roald Dahl Festival - Thornhill Primary School and their adaptation of 'Georges Marvellous Medicine'. 172114-13

NO fewer than 1,000 youngsters from 13 schools across Rotherham showcased their talents at the first Roald Dahl Festival.

The event held at Magna over four days last week brought to life three of the author’s best known stories — The Twits, George’s Amazing Medicine and Danny, The Champion of the World — aided by an impressive orchestra of professional musicians brought together especially for the event.

It was organised by Martyn Howells, strategic leader of Rotherham Music, who worked closely with Andy Smith who composed a phenomenal music score, while the Advertiser’s very own Charlie Graves acted as narrator.

Primary and secondary schools taking part were: Whiston, Wath Central, West Melton, Milton, Wales, Sitwell, Thornhill, Canklow Woods, Brinsworth Howarth, St Bernard’s RC, Maltby Manor, Maltby Lilly Hall and Ravenfield.
