Wednesday 27th February -
Fresh from Roche Panto's Beauty and the Beast, Shane Gregory returns to the studio for an update on the Clays Panto Awards. Three years since Shane and a couple of like minded Panto people resurrected the awards, the numbers of Panto entries has grown and the popularity of the awards night is testament to the superb community spirit that brings everyone together to celebrate the hard work and sheer joy that is involved in panto.
Ed Rowe (aka Kernow King) makes a long overdue return visit to the studio; since we last spoke to Ed he has had overwhelming success with a range of productions from the small but perfectly formed Cornish Caretakers to the epic Hireth, he has also starred in Mark Jenkin's 'BAIT' and managed to fit in panto in Wales. This year is already busy for Ed and we look forward to hearing Ed's plans for 2019.
