These talented children could soon take the West End by storm after winning scholarships to a performing arts school.

Phoebe Lewis and David Hans, seven, Katya Kirby, ten, and Maddison Johnson, 12, all from Potters Bar, were given a free place to attend Top Hat Stage School, in Elm Park Community Centre.

Mayor of Hertsmere Paul Morris presented the group with their awards at the Mutton Lane stage school on Friday.

He said: “I think you are all going to be the stars of the future. Make sure you make the most of this wonderful opportunity you have been given.”
