Cllr Harvey blogged about the performance saying: “I had the greatest of delights to watch the Royal Latin’s production of “The Magic of Mary Poppins.” “It was made even more wonderful by watching it in the company of primary school children from around the town.

“It is a majestic show with song, dance, moments of anguish and moments of joy.

“It features a cast of dozens and a backstage crew to match.

“It was a stunning show to watch and see how all the pieces fell into place as the story was told.
