A 15-year-old Kettering schoolgirl will perform in front of thousands of people as part of one of the UK’s biggest song and dance troupes.

Martha Winterflood, a pupil at Southfield School, will be entertaining up and down the country as part of the 20-strong West End Kids group.

Martha and the troupe have already performed at the Chelsea Flower Show and will also be at West End LIVE in Trafalgar Square (June 24-25), Camp Bestival at Lulworth Castle (July 28-30), Carfest South (August 26-27)) and Concours of Elegance in Hampton Court Palace (September 2).

Martha said: “I’m particularly excited about performing at West End LIVE.

“It’s a huge event in Trafalgar Square that showcases all the West End shows. 

“I can’t really believe that in a few weeks I will be performing alongside the casts of West End shows in front of thousands of people.”

West End Kids is an elite musical theatre song and dance troupe based in central London.

The company provides a unique programme of on the job training combining intensive weekend rehearsals with a busy performance schedule.

Martin Williams, founder and artistic director of West End Kids, said: “Now in our 16th year, we are heading into our busiest summer ever.

“West End LIVE is a huge highlight and we’re delighted to be supporting Children In Need by making our first appearance at Carfest too.

“Add Camp Bestival, Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court Palace to the mix and the young singers and dancers of West End Kids will get to perform for tens of thousands of people over the next few months, which is hugely exciting and priceless experience for all of them.”
