A Lions group in Swaffham has raised more than £800 for charity after hosting a play about a well-known Swaffham folk-tale character, The Pedlar.
The Pedlar of Swaffham, a musical production, put on by the Eyes Write Theatre Group, enthralled its packed audience during the show on Saturday, September 23.
The players put on an entertaining display based on the well-known story, with a cast of 18 actors - including a dog.
Performed at the Barn Theatre, Swaffham, the play included music and scenery changes.
The Eyes Write Group, a amateur performing arts association, approached the Lions to help put on the musical in the home town of the Pedlar.
Playwright Alan Huckle, approached the Lions on behalf of the group.
And thanks to the Lions' connections to the town, the event was a resounding success, and raised more than £800 for charitable causes.
