Victorian street urchins took to the stage for a production of a classic Charles Dickens novel.

Tansley Primary School performed their version Oliver Twist in the Village Hall.

The production was a fitting way to end to a term spent studying the Victorians, finding out in particular what life was like for the poor.

Pupils donned flat caps and tatty rags to perform the unforgettable tale of an orphan boy and a group of pickpockets on the streets of London.

The play had been postponed from before Christmas due to bad weather.

Head Teacher Tracey Holmes said: “Earlier in the year the children visited Southwell Workhouse and so they were able to fully empathise with the characters in the story.

“They have really enjoyed getting playing their Victorian character and singing some of the well-know songs from the musical.”
