Congratulations are Due

to all the runners and riders in this year's competitions. It was a fun-packed party last night, with turns from Silas Hawkins, poetry from Anthea Courtenay, stand-up comedy from Belinda Blanchard, an excerpt from "Shirley Valentine" with Nicola Hollinshead, an excerpt from "Pepys' and the Playhouse" by Colin Pinney, and as regular as Wizzard and mulled wine, four sketches from The Teak Show, aka Johnnie Hansler and Jackie Stirling.

There was also some excellent food laid on by the staff of the Green Man - as well as some wondrous carrot cake.

Not to mention a panto from Peter Vincent. But you knew that, didn't you?
As for the prizes: Best play was scored by Sam South with Chase's Face, best comedy, by Peter Vincent for Jack in the Box.

Actress of the year was Anthea Courtenay. Actor of the year was Tim Gambrell, for the third year running, tied with Panni Skrivanos.

I got home after eleven. That is a sign of a good party.

We'll be back on January 11th, with a play by comedy of the year writer, Peter Vincent. That should be a good way to start the ball rolling.

And the blog goes on. Just because we've taken a break, doesn't mean you have to. After all, Napoleon is still wowing them in the Gruffalo.

Is that really Giles in the middle in a trilby? He gave a memorable performance as Peter Pan which I hope can be repeated next year.
