Panto group brings story of sleeping beauty to life

A pantomime group is busy preparing for this year’s production of Sleeping Beauty.

Ashington Panto Group will present the popular panto Sleeping Beauty, at Ashington High School on Green Lane, from Wednesday, November 18, to Saturday, November 22.

The Ashington Panto Group, formally known as St Aiden’s Pantomime, began with their first production, Clinkerella, back in 1986 with homemade costumes and scenery.

Last year the group wowed the crowds with their production of Cinderella.

The annual family pantomime will take place at 7pm with an additional matinee show at 2pm on Saturday.

Tickets are priced at £3.50 for adults, £3 for senior citizens and £2.50 for children, and are available by calling (01670) 851284.
