Community pantomime postponed until 2021 – oh yes it is!


The community pantomime ‘Murder in the Wenallt’, which was due to be performed in April this year has now been postponed until 2021.

Prepaid ticket sales have been sent to the cancer charity Tenovus but director Anthea Parker has assured that these ticket sales will be honoured when the pantomime is actually performed.

“We were hoping to reschedule for next Easter but we will be letting people know in the New Year regarding dates. It may well be the Autumn before we actually get to perform but in the meantime, we have been making up original songs to motivate each other and doing ‘Zoom’ rehearsals.

“We are also privileged to have the support of West End Star Peter Karrie who is looking forward to performing with us again and of course, our Rhiwbina councillor Jayne Cowan who is revisiting her role of the Wicked/Good Witch! Hopefully the audiences will see the results of our efforts next year!” said Anthea.

£1,300 has already been sent to Tenovus to help them during the challenging year.

Elaine Bissenden (who fronts the Just Good Friends group in Rhiwbina) has also helped the fundraising cause by donating £120 from her daily walks in August. Elaine did 10,000 steps a day to raise funds for three charities and Tenovus Cancer Care was privileged to receive her support.

Sybil Fowler, assisted by the Rhiwbina Friends of Tenovus group have also been arranging online raffles during the last few months.

Sybil said:

“We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from choir members, friends, family and residents of Rhiwbina. We have delivered some fantastic prizes all over Cardiff.”
