Panto shows that the London Road is now paved with gold

DICK Whittington is making a triumphant return to Southborough, where the A26 London Road is paved with gold and the rats are on the run.

Putting 29 years of performances in Tonbridge behind them – non-profit theatre company, The Community Pantomime (TCP) have come back to the town with the support of a local sports club.

TCP director Nell Price said: “When the previous venue in Southborough became too expensive to rent, we were lucky enough to join forces with the Tunbridge Wells Youth Football Club.

“We are a small community panto group who don’t charge fees for children to be a part of our group, ensuring that everyone can get involved, particularly during such a hard time financially.

“It was really important to find a venue that could work with us to put on such a great community event. We’re very grateful to the Tunbridge Wells Youth Football Club for having us in their new football pavilion in Southborough.”

Familiar faces on stage include Martin Collis as Thomas the Cat, ‘Dame’ Edd Price as Fanny Fitzwarren and Cheryl Crouch playing the evil Queen Rat.

Put on your travelling boots and hit the road with Dick and ‘Thom’ Cat on their quest to rid Southborough of the rotten rats…

‘Dick Whittington’s Adventures in Southborough’ will be performed on January 13-15 at Ridgemont Football Pavilion, The Ridgewaye, Southborough. Tickets and show times available at For group bookings over 10 people contact
