Madness songs form basis for musical

Pupils at a school in Higham Ferrers are performing a musical based on the music of a popular band.

More than 50 talented students at The Ferrers School are taking part in Our House, which features the music of the group Madness.

The musical tells the story of Joe Casey, who has to decide whether to take the right or wrong path, and face the consequences, and is fast-paced and thought provoking.

It is being performed in the school hall at 7pm from Wednesday, July 16, to Friday, July 18.

Tickets are available from Student Services and cost £6 and £4 for concessions.
