Jack and the Beanstalk


Yes it’s that time of year! (oh no it’s not!)  Stinchcombe’s Panto is now under two months away and tickets are already selling fast.  The cast is smaller this year, but what is lost by the quantity is more than made up by the quality of the Panto! (you thought I was going to say something else then didn’t you)

Seriously it’s one of the funniest Panto’s we have done and will be well worth coming to see. It’s very much a Stinchcombe Village Panto this time and back to our roots.

Tickets can be ordered online at www.stinchcombevillageplayers.org.uk

Stinchcombe Panto has been around now since 2005 but we do need new members and especially help backstage during the productions. If you would like this Village Institution to continue, PLEASE come forward and help. Like all things it’s only as good as the support it gets. If Stinchcombe residents don’t support if, one year, it won’t be there.

The first shot to be fired by a British soldier on the Continent of Europe since the Battle of Waterloo, almost 100 years before, was by a Corporal Thomas of the 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards on 22nd August 1914. The British Expeditionary Force (BEF) was only eighty thousand men strong, so small that the Kaiser called it “a contemptible little army”. The Legend of the “Angels of Mons”, the Retreat, the “Miracle of the Marne” and the First Battle of Ypres are all recounted in this presentation. This is the story of “The Old Contemptibles”.
