YOUNGSTERS from around the world came together in Oxford to tell the story of an English classic.

As part of Pegasus Theatre’s MESH Festival, 150 youngsters put on a production of Beowulf and Grendel at the Town Hall in St Aldate’s on Friday.

The production was the finale of this year’s festival which is a 10-day celebration of international youth arts.

Hester Bond, creative producer of MESH 2014, said: “It was a fitting and exhilarating representation of the hard work which has gone on during the festival. It was a huge triumph for international relations between the seven countries that took part in the festival.”

The production of Beowulf was set in a post-apocalyptic world and was told from the point of view of young people.
