A ROCK and roll extravaganza was staged by students at Pennine Magpie in Halifax.

The organisation is a not-for-profit social enterprise which offers life-changing skills for adults with learning difficulties.

Each year the Halifax centre puts on a show and this year’s has attracted an audience of 50 people a day over its three-day run.

It boasted rock and roll tunes, drama and dance, with students also creating props, costumes and researching the 1950s period.

Manager Gillian Sheard said: “It’s taken about five months to pull together.

“It enthuses the students, gives them self-worth, team building skills and is a lot of fun too

“They had a brilliant time.”

The show was pulled together by Janet Lord of the centre.
