Scots school wins free film trip after Hugh Jackman praise
Drakies Primary in Inverness posted a video on social media of pupils performing This Is Me from The Greatest Showman.
The performance was described by the X-Men and Les Miserables actor as “awesome”.
Now the school has said it has had a trip to watch the film - paid for by 20th Century Fox - organised for 23 February.
The movie is inspired by the story of P. T. Barnum’s Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its star attractions.
Real life members of the show were General Tom Thumb and Scottish-born Angus MacAskill, who is recorded as having been 7ft 9’.
The Greatest Showman surged to top spot at the UK box office in its sixth week of release in a hugely unexpected result.
The film has delivered six straight weekends with £2 millon-plus box office – a feat rarely achieved. The last film to manage it was Paddington in 2014.
