Youngsters from Bourne Abbey Primary School took over market day on Thursday last week to launch the new Rock You Theatre School in the town.

The pupils staged a flashmob to music by Queen outside the Corn Exchange to promote a theatre week at Bourne Abbey from August 11 to 14, between 10am and 2pm.

School founder Andrew Clingo said: “I started teaching at the school in October and one of the things I had to do was the Year 6 leavers’ production.

“As it was my first one and the headteacher’s (Cherry Edwards) last, I wanted to do something with a bit of a wow factor.

“So I thought of We Will Rock You and the kids who did it showed a real enthusiasm for theatre.

“Now we’re doing a summer school and then a theatre school on Saturdays from September 12.”

The school is open to any child in Years 5 to 9.
