As always, the acting and singing were very good, the Dame was brilliant. However, the plot was very weak and difficult to follow. Not as good as previous years.

This year's panto, The hunchback of Notre Dam, was brilliant. This time it was much more of a musical than an old fashioned panto but that was fine. The performers were very good and as usual encouraged audience participation. A very good night out.
