The orchestra of Ridley Road, a state school, is to give a concert in Moscow at the European Festival of Youth, playing Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony before an audience of cultural bigwigs. But their instruments have been impounded by Customs. Luckily, Alex, the Russian boy who cleans the hall, is a devout ‘Pinball Wizard’ fan who comes up with a plan that saves everyone.
By Simon Armitage
Performed by students from Riddlesdown Collegiate.
Six friends are interviewed by the police after the disappearance of Lucy Lime, a strange unnerving girl - 'I am a walking Universe, I am' - whom they met beneath the cliffs on a Cornish beach, just before the total eclipse of the sun.
