On the Saturday of the Queen’s Jubilee weekend, Bispham CastAways, were performing at Glen Tanar care home in Bispham for the residents, staff, friends and family. It was a special occasion for the care home as Maggie, one of the residents, was celebrating her 101st birthday too! The afternoon started with singing by Hayley Price and assisted by Sue Hope, featuring “We’ll Meet Again” and “Is This The Way To Amarillo?”. After a short break, where guests helped themselves to barbecue and took a lucky dip on the tombola, the CastAways performed their short pantomime, ”The Princess and The Mouse” by Belladonna Mysteries. Great Fun was had by all and Bispham CastAways look forward to performing for Glen Tanar again.
