Brightwell's own Old Time Music Hall played 3 sell-out performances to rapturous applause on 14th 15th & 16th December.
Inspired by Clive Collett, as part of the commemorations of the centenary of the end of WW1 - and of the Suffragette movement - the show brought us music, dance, comedy, magic, puppets, ventriloquy, and knife-throwing, supported by a 9-piece orchestra of villagers and friends, and ending with a moving tribute to the soldiers of the First World War.
This was a huge project involving around 75 people in the creation of sets, props and costumes, as well as performing, managing "The Old Bull and Bush" pop-up pub, and not least, building a stage from scratch in the Village Hall.
Massive thanks are also owed to the many donors who provided money, materials, costumes, raffle prizes etc., and without whom the show could not have gone ahead.
While the audience will have spotted plenty of familiar faces and seasoned performers, a very special accolade is due to the numerous performers who were taking to the stage for the very first time, and gave their all to create a sensational spectacle.
