THE annual performing arts summer school for people with disabilities will be held by the Papworth Trust, from July 17-21.

This will be the fifth annual summer school held in Papworth by the charity.

The schools gives budding writers, musicians, and actors with a disability aged between 15 and 50 the chance to learn new skills and show their talents.

The activities will be led by internationally renowned musician Michael Copley. The summer school culminates in a free concert on Friday July 21 at 2.30pm at Papworth Everard village hall.

John Wilby, progression manager for the Papworth trust, said: "We want to encourage anyone who is interested to come along and join us, and perhaps learn a new skill.'
