Sea Cadets put Bristol Old Vic cast through their paces

It's only their first week of rehearsals, but the cast of Swallows and Amazons have already been thrown in at the deep end.

The stars of our hit family show, which returns to our Theatre by popular demand this Christmas, had to find their sea legs last Thursday during a training session with The South West Area Sea Cadets.

The Bristol-based cadets put the cast and creative team through their paces as they took to the high seas - well, Bristol Floating Harbour - to test their teamwork.

The training session left the cast eager to cry "all aboard the Swallow!" as they headed back into the rehearsal room to continue their voyage to Wildcat Island.
