Vikki’s Arts Thing Of The Week this week was discussing the anticipation surrounding the news of a Harry Potter play entitled, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, due to hit the West End int he summer of 16′.

We also heard from Helen Johnson with a review of Bugsy Malone, and we chatted about child stage actors.
