Again, a massive THANK YOU to all our Patrons, their families and friends for their continued support. We look forward to yet another year with our BBLOC family.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
29 August – 2 September

WOW, what a fabulous show this was, again it exceeded all our expectations in every aspect. We enjoyed full houses for many performances and everyone loved the children, animals and the flying childcatcher. We have 46 children in total, sharing the 10 performances equally and 5 dogs who appeared on every show. Many of the parents acted as chaperones and this helped with the smooth running of the show. We had some very lively, challenging dance numbers choreographed by Carly which kept our ensemble very busy. It was a hard show in as much as everything had to be done ‘double’, so the 2 sets of children could practice. Thank you for coming along and supporting us.

Our Civic night was again successful with the Mayor and Mayoress joining us on the Wednesday evening. Later they met all the cast in the bar after the show. They were both complimentary and welcoming to all the cast.

Our President, Simon Rawlings was able to join us on Opening Night and he was very complimentary on our production of the show.
