THE show must go on for one community pantomime based in Welshampton, with ticket sales now on.

The pantomime is scheduled to perform four shows from February 18-20, with tickets now available for all performances.

Described as 'a true community creation', the cast and crew is assembled of more than 50 people from the village and surrounding areas.

After a year away because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Welshampton Bonfire Pantomime Company is ready to make a return to audiences.

The pantomime, Bullion’s Bounty, is described as 'a fantastic explosion of family-friendly fun in a playful take on the Bugsy Malone/Gangsters and Molls genre'.

Mick Higgins, chairman of Welshampton Bonfire Committee, said: “Because of the Covid-19 situation, we’re spacing seating this year so we’ve had to put a cap on the number of tickets available.

"Limiting seats means that we’ve had to increase ticket prices slightly to cover our costs, though we’ve kept them as low as possible.”

The first performance will take place on Friday, February 18, with two more on Saturday, February 19 in the afternoon and evening, while the final performance is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, February 20.

The afternoon performances begin at 2.30 pm and the evening shows start at 7.30 pm.

Tickets cost £9.50 for adults, £7.50 for seniors and £5.50 for anyone under 16.

Director Shaun Higgins said: “Rehearsals are going very well and I’m delighted with the number of people who have come forward to perform or to join the production crew.

"Bullion’s Bounty promises to bring a riot of fun and colour to the tail end of winter.”
