Primary school children learned all about fairytale characters with a visiting show by drama students from Uxbridge College.

The students from the College visited two schools in Greenford with their original production, The Fairytale Forest.

In the interactive show, Red Riding Hood is on the way to her grandmother's cottage when she gets diverted by the big bad wolf and meets a number of famous characters including Humpty Dumpty, Puss in Boots, and the seven dwarves.

Youngsters at Horsenden Primary School in Horsenden Lane North, Greenford, responded by saying 'thank you' in art form with some colourful, creative drawings.

Sally Wright, Assistant Headteacher at Horsenden, said: "The production was absolutely brilliant - as good as some of the professional companies we have come in and perform. Our children really learned a lot and we would be happy to have Uxbridge College back any time."

Nigel Hayman, Deputy Headteacher of Ravenor Primary School in Greenway Gardens, Greenford, said: "Thank you for a splendid show - the students are welcome to come any time! It was an occasion to remember."

He praised the well-written script, excellent audience participation, variety and clear dialogue, and said the event had been educational as well as enjoyable.

Simon Clark, Section Manager: Performing Arts, Music & Dance at Uxbridge College, said: "Our students wrote, directed and performed the show from scratch and it is great for them to have a real audience - especially one which is going to give them some honest feedback! All our students are expected to treat their work as if they were professionals from day one - and our shows in the community and at venues including The Beck Theatre in Hayes and the Paul Robeson Theatre in Hounslow give them that valuable opportunity."
