The programme tells me it was The Pattingham Village Pantomime and it truly was. The audience consisted of Mums, Dads, Brothers, Sisters, Grandmas and Grandpas. The Junior section of Pattingham DG, Patchwork, provided Milkmaids, Insects, Ghosts and Dancers.

It was a fun afternoon, true to the story with a giant called Blunderbore (Mike Cope) a villain called Fleshcreep (Ian Hartley) who really did live up to his name and the audience certainly booed with gusto every time he came on to the stage. Of course a King, Maurice (Iain Coleman) and a daughter Jill (Libby Yeomans). A Fairy, Moonbeam (Laura Melia), a super dame (Scott Rayson) who really went for the laughs, and of course the old jokes were the best. Jack Trot (Abigal James) and Billy Trot (Sam Kick) were the brothers, one slightly more intelligent than the other and of course we had a cow, Daisy,  (Chris Lyon & Cara Tobin).  

All good clean fun with songs old and new and pretty dancing from Patchwork Juniors. No blue jokes or innuendos and truly entertainment for all ages. A good set and props and costumes.

Pattingham DG once again enhanced their reputation for presenting the best with this production.
