Christmas has officially launched in Tadley, as our Mrs Darling (Melanie Walters) and Captain Hook (Chris Fearn) switched on the Christmas lights, alongside Tadley Parish Councillor and Chairman Avril Burdett, and Kit Malthouse MP.
Our panto stars also received their traditional Besom broom at the switch-on. These brooms have put Tadley on the map, supplying the Royal household, and also through appearances in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Johnny Depp film Dark Shadows.
