TALENTED youngsters descended upon a Napoleonic fort to show off their skills as part of Harwich Festival of the Arts.

There was something for everyone as dancers, singers and musicians joined together for The Big Celebration of Young Harwich on Saturday at the Redoubt.

Coordinator Clare Leach was delighted at how the day went and hopes it will become a fixture in future festivals.

“There are so many talented youngsters in this area, but unless you know them personally then you probably do not know how good they are,” she said.

“We had everything from pipers to ballroom dancers who are representing Harwich on a national level and it was brilliant to give them a platform to show the town what they can do."
