Streets are paved with gold for Hadlow panto

HADLOW Village Hall will be transformed into old London town this weekend for the local pantomime about Dick Whittington and how he came to meet his famous cat.

The show, which is being staged by the Hadlow Amateur Dramatic Society, features well-known show tunes as well as the traditional panto jokes, songs and dancing.

There is a very big rat problem in the attic above Dick’s room, so he sets out to find a rat catcher and purchases Barnaby, a talking cat, for the price of one penny.

With his friend by his side, Dick goes on to seek his fortune in London town, where he has been told that the streets are paved with gold.

There will be performances on Friday [January 11] at 8pm and Saturday at 3pm and 7.30pm.

Entry cost £8.50 for adults, £6 for children – and £6 for concessions on Friday night only.

Tickets are available from Hadlow Pharmacy and Village Butchers & Store in East Peckham.
