Replacing the Pantomime this year was an eclectic mix of song, dance, prose and music based loosely around a 1930's theme.

Inspired by the 'BBC Light Programme' the producers & cast skillfully wove their magic across 3 stages.

The audience were fed and watered as well as being entertained by a cast from 7 to 70 years of age.

Featuring a big band, news, current affairs, high fashion, songs & monologues of the era and the notorious 'Markham CanCan' the evening ended on the sombre note of the declaration of World War 2.
