Talented Norwich pupils put on a great show

Talented young performers have been taking to the stage as City Academy Norwich performed the show CAN's Got Talent to a sell-out audience.

Singing, dancing, poetry and martial arts were among the wide-ranging entertainment performed by the 14 acts taking part in the show at the Earlham Road school.

The acts battled it out in front of an audience of 300 people to try to win the CAN Talent Award trophy.

Music teacher and show coordinator Jo Betts said: 'The students had been working hard since November for the show and it was the culmination of a lot of hard work. It was a really exciting event.'

Thirty-five students performed in the show and a number of students also helped out backstage. Eight City College Norwich students did the performers' hair and make up.

Money from the ticket sales will go towards future productions at the school
