Kendal theatre group organises pub panto tour
2:41pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
A GROUP from Kendal Community Theatre is to bring festive entertainment to Kendal pubs in December.
They will perform a short comic pantomime and other light-hearted items in an event lasting between 15 and 30 minutes at each pub.
A collection for the Mayor of Kendal’s charity, the Kendal Lads and Girls Club, will be taken at each venue.
Exact dates and times have not yet been arranged and more information will be issued nearer the time. There will also be posters up at the pubs.
“We shall be visiting half-a-dozen pubs during the week”, said Chris Taylor, who is organising the tour. “There will be songs and readings as well as the short pantomime.
“We hope that patrons of the pubs will be entertained and will be generous in contributing to the Mayor’s charity. We invite interested landlords of central Kendal pubs to contact us.”
Coun John Willshaw, the Mayor of Kendal, said: “The Kendal Lads and Girls club provides indoor and outdoor activities for youngsters and teenagers in Kendal and the money raised will help to support these activities. I am very grateful to Kendal Community Theatre for their support and wish them well with their venture.”
