Pupils have been entertaining family and friends with a bubbly performance to celebrate a Kempston school’s 60th anniversary.

Youngsters at Balliol Lower School have been performing Danielle and Ivan’s Excellent Adventure - a production full of acting, singing and dancing.

The concert is a celebration of some of the key moments of the last six decades, seen through the eyes of two pupils who discover a time-travelling tardis.

Danielle and Ivan set out to gather up a famous name from each decade to take back to school for a history presentation.

Along the way they capture Elvis Presley, Neil Armstrong, Suggs, Margaret Thatcher and Princess Diana.

Written by teacher Vicky Harrison and involving 150 pupils, preparations for the concert have kept everyone busy for the last few weeks.

A real life, smoke-billowing tardis provides the backdrop for dance, song and music which keeps the audience on their toes until Danielle and Ivan make it safely back to the classroom and 2014.

Opportunities percussionist Dave Probert put together the show which has been attended by more than 800 people from the Balliol community.
