Have your say

IT REALLY is behind them now but Thetford Players are toasting a hit panto run.

The amateur group played to near sell-out audiences on all three nights of their production of Dick Whittington at the Carnegie Room last weekend.

It was the first time in five years that Thetford has hosted a pantomime and Bob Waple, the group’s assistant director, was delighted with the turnout and feedback.

“It went extremely well – we sold nearly 800 tickets which is a record for a Thetford pantomime,” he said.

The Saturday evening show also saw the winners of a pantomime colouring competition receive their prizes.

Shadwell Stud donated £100 for each of the schools who entered the competition.
