Our 20th anniversary celebrations got off to a flyer last night as the good people of Colne (and beyond) joined us at Colne Village Hall for the first of our two nights of Take Your Seat.  So many of them took their seats that we almost ran out of seats!  It was more or less…

The actors are there to feed the dog

The dog is there to bite the actors if they don’t perform. Take Your Seats – you’d be barking mad to miss it! Tickets are on sale now. Also available from Bluntisham Service Station, or on the door. No dogs or actors were harmed in the making of this post.
