Episode 3: Independence, Forward and Beyond 1995-2020
Following the pantomime in 1995, relations with the management of Faringdon Community Centre finally broke down (the centre was shut down 4 years later).

All productions stopped following the pantomime in 2020 as the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic rampaged through the country and the rest of the world.

Total number of productions during this 26-year period: 82
