In 1985, Potterne Panto group staged its first show of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to raise funds for Potterne Country Fair.  

The pantomime soon became a major part of the village calendar and it has been well supported by a number of villagers over the years.  The panto part of the country fair became so popular that the committee dropped the actual fair to concentrate on the shows and the organisation was re-christened Potterne Panto Group.

The fundraising has continued and over the years it has donated thousands of pounds to local charities and village groups, with around £1,200 to £1,500 per year going to good causes.

With the exception of the very first production and Mary Poppins at Easter in 1993, the pantomime takes place at Potterne Village Hall during the February half-term.

Three decades after its first show the group is still going strong and, in 2015, performed Snow White again for its 30th Anniversary, albeit the story line had been extensively rewritten to bring it up to date.

There is a dedicated core of members, many of whom have given 20 years-plus experience to the group and they are keen to pass on their expertise to new and prospective members of the group.

If you are interested in joining the group in any capacity, be it on the stage, technical support, costume design and manufacture, music, sound or lighting, etc, please visit our "Contact Us" page for further details.
