The timeless tale of Sleeping Beauty smashed records when it was performed by Hethersett Pantomime Group earlier this year.

The production was the group's first which sold out for its entire run of nine shows.

Neville Greenhalgh, chairman of the group, said: 'I would like to thank everyone involved over the months leading up to the panto and during panto week for their hard work and commitment. The actors and band rightly get the applause on the night, but so many other people contribute to putting on a show and it would take too long to list them all.

'This year set a new record, in that we sold out for each performance before the start of the run.'

The show was dedicated to the memory of three Hethersett panto stalwarts - Tony Press, Marie Stevenson and Peter Salter. Last year the pantomime group passed the £100,000 mark in its donations to charities and good causes.
