Students from City of Bristol College, South Bristol skills academy are also bringing their skills to the production, students will be doing the make up for a cast of 30, including 20 more young ACTA actors who are the background artists for the live broadcast.

BBC Children in Need believes that every child should have a safe, happy secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential and this year BBC West are supporting this ambition by engaging young people to explore their potential in film-making.
