Ho ho ho and it’s down to Dunstable’s Grove Theatre we go!
On Thursday (June 9) theatre staff are putting on a mini olympics with stars from this year’s panto, Aladdin, competing against teams from local businesses.
There’ll be a number of Aladdin-themed events including the Arabian Market Sweep, the Princess Jasmine Etiquette Relay, Genie Dress Up, Magic Carpet Toss and Widow Twankey’s Washing Line.
There will also be a panto record breaking attempt inspired by Guinness World Records.
Grove spokeswoman Hannah Delaney said: “One or two cast members will take part by eating as many mince pies in a minute as possible.
“The current record stands at 54 so game on, we say.”
She added: “Dunstable’s Cake House has very kindly offered to bake us a fresh batch and we’re going to create an annual record book of our own.”
The event starts at 11am and weather permitting, will be held in Grove Park.
