The special music and drama sessions held this week at Millbrook as part of the Millbrook Performing Arts Festival welcomed children from both the Greatfield Park and Cooper's Edge primaries. They took part in Of Mice and Mozart.
Jenny Cameron, Head of Performing Arts said.
 
"A highlight was when the youngsters created their own musical from scratch in just a morning and performed it. It was Of Mice and Mozart and the told the story of the composer's life using his familiar tunes but with new words." 
 
There was an art exhibition too, and former pupil Tim Phelps, now an actor, judged a competitive arts festival for the primary schools.
