A star of Six the Musical will be appearing at a summer dance workshop in Ely.

West End performer Cherelle Jay is coming to Ely in August for a very special class based upon the award-winning musical Six.

For those that haven't seen the hit show, Six is a modern retelling of the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII presented as a pop concert.

The respective Queens take turns singing and telling their story to see who suffered the most due to Henry and should, therefore, become the group's lead singer.

The musical was first presented by Cambridge University students at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017.

It has since gone on to professional productions in the West End, on Broadway and internationally.

Cherelle, who famously played Anne Boleyn amongst other main roles of the smash hit musical, is over the moon to be visiting Ely and meeting many of the region's budding performers.
