Special show from children’s centre to mark Queen’s Jubilee
A CHILDREN’S centre in Peterborough is showing its patriotism by organising a special community variety show to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Honeyhill Children’s Centre, in Chadburn, Paston, is holding the event, dubbed “60 Years on the Throne”.
The show is being organised by local residents and children from the centre.
It will feature six decades of popular entertainment to cover the length of The Queen’s reign, including music and comedy sketches.
There will be tributes to such beloved musicals as Oliver!, My Fair Lady and the West End stalwart Les Misérables.
It will also feature such children’s entertainment as Punch and Judy, Pinky and Perky and In the Night Garden.
Jason Wilson, children’s centre manager, spoke of his hopes for the event.
He said: “This promises to be an entertaining show and local residents have been working really hard over the past few months to organise it. Our community shows are also popular and we’ve hosted several pantomimes and variety shows.
“This show will be extra special and will feature a Queen Elizabeth II look-alike who will reminisce about her 60-year reign.”
The show takes place on Friday, May 25, at 6.30pm with another chance to catch it on Saturday, May 26, at 2.30pm.
Tickets cost £3 for adults and £1.50 for children.
They can be booked by calling Honeyhill Children’s Centre on 01733 577611.
All money raised will help fund the centre’s community Christmas pantomime, Aladdin.
