COLLYWESTON Players will perform A Collyweston Tale on Thursday, Friday next week and Saturday, March 26.
Written by Henry Sauntson and assisted by Pauline Smith, this pantomime production is loosely based on Collyweston History.
In amongst the slapstick, jokes, fights and inevitable happy ending typical of any pantomime there are historical facts about a palace at Collyweston which was home to Lady Margaret Beaufort, the mother of Henry VII who married Elizabeth, the palace gardens and fish ponds, and Richard III who was supposedly involved with the imprisonment of the Princes in the Tower. Added to this is the friendly rivalry between the villages of Collyweston and Easton-on-the-Hill.
Tickets for performances on Thursday and Friday at 7.30pm and Saturday at 6.30pm in Collyweston Village Hall are £5 for adults and £3 for children from Glenis - 01780 444694 or on the door.
