Panto! 132 tickets please for Stanstead Abbotts Scout Group
Friday, 22 January 2016 08:51

fun at Panto1st Stanstead Abbotts went to Panto last Friday night! Oh yes we did! And had a wonderful evening! With over 132 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Young Leaders, adult volunteers, siblings and a few parents and carers joining in the fun - there was no mistaking we all love a bit of Panto! Lots of laughter and some suitably very, very loud joining in!

It was great production of Aladdin and such fun for all our boys and girls and so many of our adults and families to get together on the same night. We reckon we took over about half of Broxbourne's Spotlight Theatre that night - and we certainly gave the loudest cheer when they gave us a 'shout out'.
