Enthusiastic members of Lively Atmosphere, the Brandon Trust drama workshop for people who have learning disabilities, have been receiving some useful panto playing tips from a professional.

The 20 strong group from all over the Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead and Weston areas are busy rehearsing for their next production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs being staged at Nailsea's Scotch Horn centre at the end of January.

So well-known local actor, director and writer Chris Harris who has appeared in UK TV series including The Labyrinth, dropped in to their rehearsals at Clevedon Town Council Office last Thursday, October 4 to give them a helping hand.

Chris will be directing this year's production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Bath Theatre Royal and also playing the dame.

Brandon Chief Executive Lucy Hurst-Brown said she was delighted that Chris had been able to spare a little of his valuable time to give some extremely helpful advice to the Lively Atmosphere members.
