Brackley Players present Little Panto of Horrors

Here is our guide to some of the events coming up in and around Buckingham this week.

1 Pantomime
Little Panto of Horrors, Magdalen College School, Waynflete Avenue, Brackley, 7.30pm Thursday February 8 and Friday February 9 and at 2.30pm Saturday February 10
Brackley Players present a unique panto which, as the name suggests, is slightly similar to the musical and film based in the shop. However, instead of being a dark story, this is pantomime and so good will triumph over evil with help from the travellers of the universe to ensure Flora keeps her shop. With laughs, comedy slapstick and sword fights this is a panto somewhat different! Tickets £9 and £7 from Davies and Partners, Market Square, Brackley or call 07516 408897 or online (booking fee applies online):
