KNUTSFORD Academy sixth form musical theatre students joined former Academy student and West End and Broadway star Danielle Hope for a one-off concert hosted at The Other Palace Theatre in London.

They performed alongside Danielle and her host of other professional guests, watched by a sell-out audience.

Danielle shot to fame in 2010 as the winner of the BBC talent contest Over The Rainbow.

Knutsford Academy’s head of performing arts Helen Mayne said: “We were all incredibly proud of the professionalism demonstrated by the students, and it was lovely to hear the compliments they received from Danielle, her guests and the audience.”
