One of the first events in the Globe theatre's new education season will take place next week when Norfolk schoolchildren will perform at the London theatre.

Twenty A-level students from Sprowston high school, Norwich, will perform Kemp's Jig at the Globe at midday next Wednesday. The following Wednesday, nearly 200 children will perform it again in Norwich. The piece is inspired by Shakespearean actor Will Kemp, who danced a jig from London to Norwich in 1600. Sponsored by Norwich Union, it is also part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. For more information about the Globe's education projects, ring 0171 620 0202.
