Disney, David Bowie and Star Wars featured in a packed Christmas performance by Phoenix Gymnastics Club. 

About 200 children took part in three showings of the performance on Saturday and Sunday at the club's Water Oakley base in Windsor Road. 

Usually the club only puts on a Christmas show every other year but as part of an ongoing fundraising push it decided to run the show two years in a row. 

The club has to vacate its Water Oakley site by next summer and is making plans for a new building in Fifield after planning permission was granted in March.

Children from five to 16-years-old took to the floor in front of a full house for all three shows.

The talented youngsters showed off their skills, backflipping and pirouetting across the floor, themed to a mix of backing tracks. 

Centre Director Lynn Bushell said: "It is the highlight of the year and the children have been delighted to take part again.

"Some of them have been practicing since October and it has been absolutely phenomenal to see it all coming together.

"From a community point of view we have got fantastic membership and the parents and coaches have been absolutely amazing in this performance."
