A workshop with Sir Lenny Henry

Children at a Brixton school performed their play for Sir Lenny Henry this morning. The actor and comedian lead a workshop with the group to launch the National Theatre's new initiative to get more children performing.
The scheme will give 700 schools the chance to have their teachers trained in everything from performance to sound and lighting.
Schools which sign up will have access to new plays which have been commissioned by the National Theatre especially for school children.
