Gosport resident Tammy Kent is looking forward to a performance at Thorngate Theatre

I’m looking forward to popping along to Thorngate Halls this Saturday with my children to see a group of Gosport performers.

Thorngate pantomime and variety group have been running for more than 30 years in the Thorngate Theatre in Bury Road.

They have performed many variety shows, including the swinging sixties, and pantomimes including Aladdin, Cinderella and Goldilocks and The Three Bears.

This Saturday the Thorngate Theatre throws its doors open again to the public as Thorngate pantomime and variety group perform Mother Goose.

Janet Pearse is the PR and social secretary for the group as has been for a while now, due to having bad knees.

She would love to be on the stage with her friends but is happy to work for the 30 performers who make up the group.

There are a wide variety of ages involved in the production.

Mother Goose will be performed this Saturday in the Thorngate Theatre at 1.30pm and 5.30pm and there is a final matinee on Sunday at 1.30pm

Tickets are priced at £7 and £5 for concessions.

The children of The Jubilee School of dance will also be performing.

The Jubilee School of dance is a family business that can be found on Forton Road in Gosport.

It has been teaching dance, tap and ballet to children and adults for over 60 years.

Thorngate pantomime and variety group are inviting everyone along to the theatre on January 23 when there will be an evening of fun and entertainment.

There will be local talent performing including Colin Brooker, Channelle Whitney, Dave and Cheryl Rawlinson and Door Step Entertainments as well as a raffle raising money for the flood victims in the north.

It will be £1 entry fee and there will be a special performance from the cast performing a song from Les Miserables.

There is also a raffle for a brand new BMX bike.

If any local businesses would like to donate a prize please bring them to The Thorngate by Friday, January 22.
