To celebrate its 40th anniversary Carnon Downs Drama Group is restaging Dick Whittington and His Cat, the pantomime we first performed in 1970.
Can there be anyone who has not heard the tale of the boy who went looking for streets paved with gold in London and who, when he discovered the truth, started to return home only to hear the Bow Bells ring out ‘Turn again Whittington, thrice Lord Mayor of London’?
But does everyone know that he was a real person who in 1397 really did become Lord Mayor and married Alice daughter of Alderman Fitzwarren? (In fact he was Lord Mayor 4 times but let’s not spoil the story!)
People came to Perranwell Village Hall to discover how it all ended happily ever after….
