Abigail Middleton, in the role of Rapunzel, has been hard at work preparing for this year's My First Panto performance, put on by The Garage and Norwich theatre company All-In Productions.

To take a break from her tower, the plucky princess and fellow panto stars Stewart McCheyne, from children's band Andy and the Oddsocks, and Emily Panes ventured out to John Olivers salon in Red Lion Street.

Staff at the salon curled the princess's tremendous golden tresses before fashioning them into a fishtail plait with flowers woven in.

My First Panto: Rapunzel runs at The Garage in Chapel Field North from November 29 to January 12.
