Jack and the Beanstalk raised £5750 for the Village Hall refurbishment!
Oh yes we did! We stated 2015 with a long awaited Blewbury Pantomime, our version of Jack and the Beanstalk, David brought face to face with Goliath by horticulture, a moral tale for all ages. You brought your kids, brought your grannies, cheered the goodies, booed the baddies, groaned at the jokes, had a thoroughly good time and raised money for the village hall refurbishment. There were four evening performances in the Village Hall.
Steve White wrote the script with Blewbury in mind, Jo Laugharne was our Director and Elphin Lloyd Jones our Designer
Auction of Elphin’s illustrations raised £1111 for the Village Hall refurbishment
Elphin Lloyd Jones, our resident genius, designed the set and the costumes. Elphin’s illustrations of the characters were fantastic and he generously presented them for auction and raised a magnificent sum of £1111 all of which will be given to the Village Hall Refurbishment project. So many thanks to all who took part and congratulations to the winners. The character of the sketches and their winners are listed below…
