Fulham cancel Christmas lights switch-on
4:13pm Friday 3rd December 2010 in Fulham
Amateur dramatic pantomime specialist, Back End Productions, makers of Fulham’s 2010 panto “Beauty and the Bust”, will save today’s Fulham Christmas light switch on from disaster.
Fulham Football Club were set to joint the cast of “Beauty and the Bust” and the Deputy Mayor Cllr Frances Stainton to turn on Fulham’s Christmas lights at 18.00 this evening but the footballers have now made it know that they are unable to make it (snowed-in?) and will instead send mascot Terry Bytes.
Actors from “Beauty and the Bust” will now become one of the main attractions and will help Terry Bytes and Cllr Frances Stainton turn on the Christmas lights, but not before their festive performance, which will involve the surprise crowd pleaser of a flash mob.
The panto players will perform one of their routines from the show, but the event organisers and those in attendance do not know that Back End Productions will have secret cast members dotted amongst the audience who will also break out in song and dance.
