AN OXFORDSHIRE community put on their glad rags for a fundraising panto.

Northmoor Players staged the production of Beauty and the Beast this month with the money raised going towards the village hall.

Dion McHugh, who played narrator Felix the French Poodle, said: “We were quite proud of the fact that the panto involves more people from the community than any other thing. We had a great time doing it and there was a lot of pantomime humour.

“Our last panto, Treasure Island, was judged by Oxfordshire Drama Network to be the best in the county so we were challenging ourselves to be even better this year.”

The production ran for three days in the last week at Northmoor Village Hall.
