Ricky Tomlinson is spell bound by ‘The Alt Family’

Alt Bridge School were delighted to welcome the fantastic Ricky Tomlinson to their school this week.

The Drama club worked exceptionally hard writing and producing a performance inspired by the one and only, ‘Royle Family’. Ricky gushed about the performance congratulating the pupils on their hard work and talent!

The cast included, Jamie Mercer as Jim, Billie-Jo Murphy as Barb’, Faye Grayson as Denise, George Owen as Dave and Sonny Horrocks as Antony.

Following the performance, Ricky answered questions from pupils and was keen to find out more about them and our school.

Ricky was a true gentleman, taking the time to have a photograph with everyone, nothing was too much trouble.

Ricky shared some hilarious stories which carried important messages, including “Push past setbacks, get up and try again” and, “It doesn’t matter where you are from, you can achieve whatever you want to”.

He rounded off a memorable afternoon by inviting some lucky pupils and staff to the premier of his new film ‘Gloves Off’ at the FACT Cinema. We cannot wait to attend!

The afternoon was a total success; Ricky had pupils, staff and parents alike, laughing, feeling uplifted and motivated to achieve their dreams.

Alt Bridge would like to say a huge thank you to our local hero, “Ricky you are welcome in our school anytime!”
