This year's Christmas pantomime in Eye will take an audience from Suffolk to London and off to an exotic sultan's island.

Co-directors Simon Hooton and Jules Blaxill plan to stage Dick Whittington, a traditional pantomime tale about a young man who travels to London to make his fortune.

A meeting for anyone interested in getting involved will take place at Dove Hall on Wednesday, September 13, starting at 7pm.

Mr Hooton said: 'We are always trying to keep improving and with differing commitments we often need newcomers to help in different roles. 'This is definitely an exploratory meeting – a chance to come and ask about things without having to commit to anything.'

Mr Hooton said newcomers were welcome to take part on stage, backstage, making sets and props, managing sound and lights and in other roles.
