David Nixon, Martha Leebolt, Tobias Batley and I attended a reception at Buckingham Palace to celebrate young people in the performing arts. The event was hosted by HM The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
We arrived at 5.15 and passed through the main gates, walking across the courtyard and around the inner quadrangle to the main entrance. We followed the red carpet up the staircase and into the Portrait Gallery for champagne and canapes.

Some of the 470 young people who are involved in the START project have given us feedback on our Days of Dance which took place at Northern Ballet at the end of March. The START project, supported by the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts, enables young people who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to access the arts, to take part in dance activities and to visit local theatres.
The KC Stadium in Hull is set to become Yorkshire's biggest dance floor on Good Friday as 250 young dancers between the ages of 8 and 20 take to the pitch for the Hull Super League derby half-time show.
Looking for Lowry is a new documentary by film maker Margy Kinmouth about the works of the Salford artist famous for his Matchstick Men and inspiration for Northern Ballet's A Simple Man.
