Youngsters at Ely's Octagon Studios treated audiences to two special summer holiday performances.

On Friday, more than 30 youngsters aged 13 and upwards performed in Dance Divine at Ely Cathedral.

It was the culmination of a summer school workshop for singers, dancers and musicians from the district and further afield, including Cambridge and King's Lynn.

And Murder at Party Palace, saw children aged between seven and 14 perform a play they devised themselves.

Octagon director Kate Marshall said: "We give them a title to work with and they come up with a story, gather costumes and design a set."

She said the play was warmly received by friends and family.
