Alistair Parnell

We all thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful performance in 2019 and was very much looking forward to a return performance in 2020 and then 2021 which both sadly due to "you know what!!" had to be postponed. So fingers crossed for this performance in 2022 and we very much look forward to welcoming Alistair back again!
