1.  Aladdin the Panto

Dartmouth Players bring you the amazing pantomime 'Aladdin' in The Flavel Theatre, Dartmouth from the 28th to 31st December.  Aladdin is the Players' 215th production and is based on a tale included in the book 'A Thousand and One Nights' by French translator Antoine Galland, published in 1710.  It has been a popular subject for panto since the 18th century, with possibly the best known pantomime character of Widow Twankey (Aladdin's mother).  This year's 'Twankey' is played by Andy Killen (one of last year's Ugly Sisters) who is definitely the 'dame' of the show.  Gil Garland plays Abanazar, the wicked magician with style (and a brilliant accent) and you'll be rooting for Aladdin (Lesley Ash) and his princess (Emily Thomas) to overcome his evil ways!  Full of fun and colour, this is a 'must see' production.  For information on performance times and tickets click here or call into The Flavel (01803 839530)

Why not come down for the weekend, or even a week?

2.  Christmas Party this Friday 23rd

James Brown from Browns Hotel reports:  We're looking forward to the party on Friday, whether you are coming to eat or if you have just arranged to meet at the bar! Remember this is a party so dress to impress! Disco dancing from 9:30.

If you have booked to eat we will be serving the starter standing around the bar from 7:15pm.  Don't arrive too late or you are likely to miss out!  We will sit everyone down at about 8pm for a bowl of steak chilli. We would like to know how many vegetarians we need to cater for, so please could you let us know by phone or email.  Optional desserts will be available.  We hope to have the tables cleared down for some serious dancing from 9:30pm. To book call 01803 832572

We will clear each table's tab at the end of the meal and then operate a cash bar from 9:30. We hope this will make it easier for everyone as I am sure people will want to move around. The bar is open as usual with complimentary tapas available from 5-7pm. If you just want to come in for a drink or dance you are more than welcome.

Remember if you just want to have some drinks and a dance you do not have to book.
