Months of hard work and dedication from 80 young people culminated in a special summer show at the Open venue in Norwich.

Last night's show included live performances in dance, musical theatre, drama and circus skills, staged in

front of civic dignitaries.

All the young people taking part are frequent users of

the facilities at Open and have been actively involved in all stages of the event, from deciding the theme of the showcase to performing on the night.
