COMEDIAN Lenny Henry and star of BBC TV show Hustle Adrian Lester visited a school to help get pupils interested in Shakespeare.
The famous pair were at The Norwood School in Crown Dale, Norwood, on Friday to lead a special class about the Bard’s life and works.
Jessie Nicholas, assistant head at the school, said: “The visit was brilliant. The pupils were really inspired and had great fun.
“They knew Lenny Henry, inset, more from his hotel adverts and also knew Adrian from TV.
“But they weren’t fazed at all.
“During the session they did a lot of voice work, talked about the language, spoke about stage presence and understanding the text.
“The students already knew quite a lot about Shakespeare which I think really impressed and delighted Lenny and Adrian.”
About 20 Year 8 and 9 pupils took part in the workshop which will be included an ITV show, to be aired later in the year, documenting how Lenny grew to love Shakespeare.
The school has a specialism in visual and performing arts and one of its governors, Mark Londesborough, works at The National Theatre which is how the connection with the actors was made.
