Sixth-form students at the independent Woodbridge School have been performing to thousands at the largest arts festival in the world.

The group of 11 students, aged 16-18, were excited to be taking their innovative production of Father Time to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Father Time is an adaption of the Grimm’s classic tales, Godfather Death and Gambling Hans. It is an immersive production of puppetry, live music and song.

Ahead of their trip to Edinburgh, the students presented a special preview performance of Father Time at the Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge.

Gemma Mayes, head of drama at the school, said: “It was a magical performance at the Seckford Theatre, the audience were captivated by the students’ young acting talent.”
