Rehearsals well under way for the Hollingbourne pantomime of Rapunzel.

Rehearsals are well under way for the 2019 Hollingbourne Pantomime of Rapunzel which will be performed nightly in the Village Hall from Wednesday 13th February until Saturday 16th February together with a matinee on the Saturday. The show was written by the late Val Leggat with songs by David Head. Rapunzel is produced by Colin Leggat and the Musical Director is Philip Reed. The story is based on the Grimm fairy tale which was first published in 1812.
