A condensed version of Swan Lake was performed by comedy duo Living Spit at Court de Wyck Church School, in Claverham.

Howard Coggins and Stu Mcloughlin were joined on stage by professional dancers Josh Hutchby and Francisca Mendo.

Co-produced by North Somerset Arts Organisation, Theatre Orchard and Living Spit, the show was part of a mini tour to primary schools in the area, following a sell-out run at the Theatre Shop, in Clevedon, over the Christmas period.

Funding support from Bristol Airport enabled Swan Lake to be presented at the schools across North Somerset.

"It was a magical time, with children transported into the mesmerising world of theatre and dance."
