Flight of the Eydon Potboiler Mark 1

September 10, 2005

Devised and Produced by Mike Jackson

Musicians: Becky Price, Verena Jackson and Faith Wilson.
Lead Air Crew: Jill Tcherniak

The evening took the form of a Round the World mystery flight. Guests boarded the 'plane, (a thinly disguised village hall), received their in-flight magazine, heard the safety announcements and were then treated to 33 items of in-flight entertainment by Captain Mike and the 17 members of his crew.
Halfway through a very convoluted journey, the fish and chip supper was most efficiently served by The Trolley Dollies
