Members of the public and council staff were treated to a 15 minute performance in the Civic Centre, held to highlight Dementia Awareness Week activities in the city.

Dance teacher Hayley Evans said: "We were delighted to be given the opportunity for our talented students to show off their dance skills. We had performances from pupils of all ages, including students from Year 7 who are members of an after school club, to GCSE performing arts students and post 16."

Julien Kramer, Director of Education, said: "This was a hugely entertaining performance which once more underlined just how fabulously talented our young people are."
