Two young performers from Saffron Walden are swapping the stage for the screen after securing a place in an upcoming TV advert.

Lily Briner, 12, and Emily Gowling, 13, made it through two sets of auditions before they were announced to appear in the latest Clarks shoe advert.

The girls will be singing in the advert, and both attend the Pure Rhythm School of Performing Arts, based in Saffron Walden.

Like any performers though, the pair are practicing for other commitments on top of their onscreen achievement, namely a production of Honk – a musical adaptation of The Ugly Duckling tale.

The arts centre has been running for 11 years, and also visits schools in Cambridge and Essex to teach drama and performing arts.

It puts a big production on once a year with its core pupils, and this year’s show is playing from July 20-22 at Dame Bradbury’s School theatre.
