Should The Team Think

ALISON CROOSE Guildhall of St George, King's Lynn (King's Lynn Festival)


Guildhall of St George, King's Lynn (King's Lynn Festival)

BBC Radio Norfolk staged their light-hearted panel game at Lynn for the first time and endeavoured to introduce some “culture” to a show which thrives on the vagaries of its panellists.

Chairman Tony Mallion posed questions, optimistically hoping for responses befitting a festival of music and the arts, but he had an uphill task in trying to raise the team's artistic aspirations.

Nevertheless, the sell-out audience were well-entertained by Keith Skipper, Sid Kipper, Roy Waller and Stephen Bumfrey, whose cultural activities proved fairly limited - even though they tried hard to give the show an arty feel!

After being “warmed up” by Maggie Secker - Radio Norfolk's answer to Pam Ayres - and Sid Kipper - Norfolk's Jethro - the audience was game for plenty of laughs.
