The people behind a west Norfolk theatre company are promising a typical musical show for their festive spectacular, A Christmas Cracker.

Les Miles, artistic director and founder of the Lavender Hill Mob theatre company, said: 'It will be a typical Lavender Hill production – big cast, big costumes and big music.

'It's an original script and music, and about 50 members of the company will appear on stage. It will be a great start for putting you all into the Christmas spirit. It's a family show, suitable for all ages, and we use British Sign Language.

'I cannot tell you much about the story, but Santa gives his elves a Christmas task, and it goes from there.'

The group is an inclusive company, which means people of all levels of ability, and those who have disabilities, are welcomed.

Founded in 2001 and based in King's Lynn, the company aims to give everyone, regardless of their ability, a chance to achieve something special and develop their skills through the medium of musical theatre.

A company spokesman added: 'From 2016 on, people will see major developments in the growth of Lavender Hill.
