Here are some of the publicity photos printed in the Sodbury & Yate Gazette.

Somehow we managed to lose the head of our cow "Daisy". However, she served us well as several ticket orders were taken as a result of this incident.

At the Chipping Sodbury Victorian Evening we had a stall and some of the members dressed up to promote the show. We had a competition to guess the number of beans in a jar. This was won by Ben Rudge (below).

We had an unfortunate problem on our third show on the Monday night. Julian Hinton who played Silly Billy managed to fall off the stage and broke his arm badly. However, the show went on with Ros Kent taking his place in the next few scenes whilst he was taken to hospital. Not even a broken arm can stop Julian from going bacj on stage and he bravely turned up for the remaining shows. Well done to all concerned.
