West End star visits Bildeston arts school
Actor, singer and dancer, Layton Williams, known for roles including the stage adaptation of Billy Elliot visited Bildeston on July 23.
Layton played the title role in Billy Elliot the Musical in London’s West End as well as the character Kylie in the BBC UK series Beautiful People and Stephen Carmichael in BBC comedy and film Bad Education.
Miss Lesley’s School of Performing Arts hosted three workshops with Layton, with each group taught a routine, before a question and answer session and a photo opportunity.
Annabel Mudge, 13, who wants to be a dancer, said: “It was a new experience and pushed us to what the real dance industry would be like.”
