Pupils impress Shakespeare director

Pupils from a Newcastle school will be performing their version of A Midsummer Night's Dream in London's West End.

Hadrian School will represent the North East in the event at the Lyric Theatre. It is one of just five schools chosen to take part and the only special school.

The event on 2 June will showcase the work of the Shakespeare Schools Festival, which gives young people the chance to perform his works in professional theatres around the country.
