This is a brand new pantomime written jointly by two members of the society, Helen Thrower and Verity Roberts. They were also the writers of our 2016 panto ‘Happily Ever After…?’. So if you came to that then you know you can expect another good one again this year.

StarsIn the ancient Kingdom of Durocornovium, a star falls to earth once in a hundred years to take their rightful place on the throne.  But this time things are a little different.  This time the Star has not fallen in quite the right place and everyone wants to find her. Kristian wants the Star to take back to his one true love. The Princes want the Star so that they can remain in power and the Witches of Savernake want the Star to help them regain their youth and beauty. All must brave the dreaded dragon, a den of delinquents and a forest of thieves but who will get to her first? Will finding the Star make all their wishes come true?  And will they all live happily ever after…?

A sparkling new panto, full of twists and turns, and with more than a hint of magic!
