Bidford panto was a great success - oh yes it was!

Laura Kearns 11th Jan, 2017

VILLAGERS in Bidford were left shouting ‘Oh yes she did’ after a local mum organised and directed a pantomime.

Helen Smith wanted to make a fun, festive pantomime accessible for those who could not get to or could not afford to go to see a show.

And the three performances of Aladdin, held in the Crawford Hall, were a success with every show a sell out.

Helen told the Observer:  “I was absolutely thrilled with how well the panto went and it was all down to everyone’s enthusiasm and brilliant teamwork.  It really was a great experience to be part of.”
