It's a circus as panto's star drops in
SLAPSTICK antics kept the visitors to a Gloucestershire farm amused this weekend.
They were getting into the festive spirit with the arrival of the star of this year's pantomime in Cheltenham.
Tweedy the Clown, who is appearing in the Everyman's Christmas offering from December, dropped in to meet young visitors to the Dick Whittington Farm Park in Little London.
It was a fitting place for the funnyman to spend his day as the pantomime this year is Dick Whittington.

Tweedy, who has recently finished a tour across Gloucestershire with Giffords Circus, is gearing up for the start of rehearsals.
This will mark his first appearance in a festive show in the Cheltenham theatre.
But he was no stranger to the style, having made an appearance in pantomime every year for the last 20 years.
Dick Whittington runs at the Everyman from November 30 to January 11.
A spokesman said: "This year's pantomime promises to be jam-packed full of laughs, songs, thrills and spills with a few surprises too."
The show even has a local connection to Gloucestershire with the real-life Dick Whittington said to have originally hailed from Pauntley, near Newent.
