More than 60 students sang, including the Othellos and their Buddies, and there was even a special performance from Ariel’s tutors and senior students.

The Ariel tent and stand was busy with people enquiring about the drama academies, which run every Saturday in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Crawley, East Grinstead and Steyning.

The sun shone making it a real day to remember.

Ariel’s drama academies all offer free trials for prospective students aged four to 19. There is no audition process and everyone is welcome.

Places are currently available at the Crawley, Haywards Heath and East Grinstead academies and short waiting lists are in place at Burgess Hill and Steyning.
