We are an independent lending library with a choice of fiction, non-fiction, audio-books, childrens books, education and

Here we go with a torrent of photos from this evening's wonderfully entertaining and funny production at Edda "We Go Nuts"; as always they're a bit blurry thanks to the low light and of course we daren't use a flash as it would be off-putting for the performers and the audience alike. The real shame is that we didn't get any usable pictures of the sound effects crew at work, aka Mathew and Seren as they were moving too much!

A great show that just leaves us looking forward all the more to the Christmas production, so a huge, nay mammoth thank you and congratulations to all who helped to shape this memorable show!
