January 2021 Pantomime Update

It is with a heavy heart that the Saffron Players committee have made the difficult decision to postpone our 2021 40th anniversary pantomime production of Rapunzel. We have the full support of our directing and production team to carry over the script to 2022. We also have plans to run workshops and other activities when restrictions allow us to do so. Please keep an eye on our social media pages for any further updates and announcements of Saffron Players future events. #Rap22
