Panto. Oh yes it is.......Oh no it isn't

We've been to the panto today - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (not dwarves?) in the New Theatre, Cardiff. We've been going to the panto every year since the kids were very little - they're now 13 and 10 - and it's always a good afternoon out. This year Lesley Joseph who played Dorien in the sitcom Birds of a Feather played the evil queen. As always, it was a jolly good romp.

I'm particularly pleased to see that tradition hasn't been knocked on the head in Cardiff, by succumbing to the politically correct. We could have ended up with Snow White and the seven vertically challenged people, or Snow Grey etc etc. Anyway, I enjoyed it. Oh yes I did.
