Narnia never looked so good.

Kingston College production arts students put their learning to good use by making up the cast of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe for a photoshoot with Time & Leisure magazine.

The Rose Theatre’s Christmas show is directed by Ciaran McConville, who said: “They were professional and a real help to us.

"Our youth theatre members were thrilled to be working with college students.”

Student Natasha Harwood said: “I got to work behind the scenes of a trailer, which I have never done before, and learned a lot about working on set.

"The photoshoot was a really good experience for me as well, as I got to work in a different environment to what I have done before.”

Meanwhile, Kingston developers CNM Estates has announced a new sponsorship deal with the Rose which will see the firm help fund the theatre's Christmas shows until 2018. 

The company, a founding sponsor of the High Street venue, has backed the shows with a £100,000 grant.
