Songwriter and pianist Matt Winkworth, of East Oxford, and writing partner Chris Bush have won £12,000 to turn their dream of writing a musical into an all-singing, all-dancing reality.

The pair, with four other writing teams, pitched their idea to a panel of judges yesterday including actor Michael Ball, playwright Samuel Adamson and director Rachel Kavanaugh. They now have 12 months to write their production, with help from award organisers Perfect Pitch.
