X Factor contestant Benji Matthews will be performing at the Redannick Theatre in Truro on April 20 and 27.

The 17 year old from Truro came into the spotlight when he appeared on the reality show X Factor last year.

Benji will be supported by Truro Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society Youth Theatre, and will be donating money raised from ticket sales back to the group.

The local talent visited the group to sign autographs and chat with budding young performers.

TAODS Youth Theatre are a charity who meet on a Thursday evening and provide opportunities to young people with a passion for the dramatic arts to get on stage and take part in fun performances.
