The cry of 'new lamps for old' will be heard at Mundesley next month as the pantomime Aladdin hits the stage.

The show is running at the Coronation Hall between February 17 and 20 - and is 'under new management.'

The 'new for old' situation is linked directly with the producers of the well attended annual event.

For the last 41 years the pantomime has been organised by the Friends of Mundesley Lifeboat.

But for 2015 the Friends have stepped down and a group of regulars have taken over.

The Mundesley pantomime is a immensely popular production and often sells out very quickly.

This is due to the local content and jokes aimed directly at some of the great and good of the area.

This year the production is directed by Ian Cashmore. Well-known local comedian Pat Nearney takes on the roll of Widow Twankey.

The cast is drawn from Mundesley and surrounding villages with a large horde of children being involved with singing and dancing in the chorus line.

The proceeds of the show will be distributed between three very deserving local charities - village First Responders, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, and Together We Share - a local charity fund set up in memory of Trevor Sizer who was himself involved in the Mundesley pantomime on many occasions.

Tickets for the panto are on sale from Monday, February 2.

They can be bought at the Corner House Café in Mundesley.

Tickets cost £6.50 for adults and £3.50 for under 12's.
