This has nothing to do with railways at all but I just felt the need to share!
One thing which I believe everybody must do before they die is go and see the pantomime at York Theatre Royal!
Whereas many pantomimes seem to feature fading stars trying to prolong their careers the York Pantomime is a world away. With all due respect to the cast, their are no 'big name' stars but a regular core of actors who have appeared in it for years.
However for those who attend regularly Berwick Kaler is a star. And along with Martin Barrass and David Leonard, the ultimate villian, provides an evening which is unforgettable and immensely enjoyable. However once you have seen the York Theatre Royal's production, no other pantomimes will ever match it.
If you have never seen Berwick Kaler's Patnomime you're life will never truly be complete.
