Panto: Did you get to see the wonderful performances of the Burwash Amateur Pantomime society last weekend. My sources say it was brilliant. The whole show was well acted and produced from scenery to costumes. Camelot is an unusual show for Panto, but it seems to have worked. There are three more performances this weekend.
