Contrast’s Panto

Contrast’s annual Panto extravaganza this year was Peter Pan. The whole of our youth group joined together to put on a fantastic show. There were opportunities to be one of the stars, take on a supporting role, play music, dance, sing, design and build the set and even organise the sound effects and music playing during the show. We’re always looking for new members, so why not join us next year either on the stage or behind the scenes? Contact Nigel Kennington ( or Cathy Clayton (
