A PERFORMING arts charity for children in St Neots held its very own Oscars evening hosted by a former EastEnders and It Ain't 'Alf Hot Mum actor.
Two hundred people attended Peppercorn's black tie awards ceremony held at the Priory Centre on Saturday April 29.
Nicki Compson, Peppercorns committee member and organiser of the Oscars evening, said: "It was our chance to celebrate the children's achievements throughout the year and for them to show off their talents to the community."
The awards were presented by former EastEnders actor Melvyn Hayes whose children attend Peppercorns and who is probably best known for his role as Gunner 'Gloria' Beaumont in the BBC sitcom It Ain't 'Alf Hot Mum.
