Following a successful 125th anniversary year, Ely Amateur Dramatic Society is preparing for its next big production - Hi-de-Hi!

It’s the start of a new season and founder Joe Maplin announces that he is setting up a camp in the Bahamas.

He needs female yellowcoats to go and work out there and the annual ‘Miss Yellowcoat’ competition will decide who is to go.

Rivalry between the girls is fierce, with Sylvia and Gladys joint frontrunners to win the coveted yellow sash.

Performances take from February 20-22 at Needhams Hall, Ely College, in Downham Road, Ely. They start at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £8 and can be purchased from Burrows Bookshop, Ely, by calling 01353 669759.
