BOURNE Free has returned to the stage with their alternative adult panto Peter Pansy.

The popular show helps raise vital money for the Bourne Free Community Fund, who support the LGBTQ+ community across Dorset.

Organisers said this year Peter Pansy will be “bigger and better than ever” and asked audiences to expect a “camp adventure with a twist”.

The last two shows had not gone ahead due to the pandemic. 

Chris Ashton, Bourne Free Chair, said: “I’m not sure if they had the pandemic in Neverland, but if they did I’m not convinced the lost boys would have coped.

“It’s been a hard time for all of us, but after a successful pride in 2021 and 2022 we are so glad to be able to bring this show back to provide some January joy.”

Peter Pansy will welcome back fan favourites Sam Callahan, Lea Martin, Jax Walker and Jason Burch, joined by Nicole Faraday, Mrs Moore, Dandy Issues and Lady Alan.

The panto is showing at the Barrington Centre in Ferndown between January 14 and 21.
