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.
