There was absolute panda-monium in Carshalton this weekend.

Mr Panda and his friend Rainbow Big Bottom taught an audience at the Charles Cryer Studio Theatre all about giant pandas, their habitats and the problems facing pandas today.

Their show, Pandamonium, on Saturday (February 16), featured magic, juggling and balloon art. The delighted youngsters even got a chance to meet Mr Panda after his performance.

Lorraine Brooker-Mays, aka Rainbow Big Bottom, started her career in a knife throwing act in a circus.

She said: "Mr Panda and I have been together for over twenty years and have appeared all over the UK.

"I have been writing children’s shows for many years. I have been blessed to work with the most wonderful kind and talented people who have been beside me on my own special adventure to bring Mr Panda to life.”
