Fairy Tale fun was the order of the night at Henley College for the 17th evening of the Living Advent Calendar last night.  The performance of Little Red Riding Hood followed by The Three Little Pigs was performed by Acorn Music Theatre Group from Henley.

A fantastic visual and music performance by over 30 local children.  They really got the audience involved in the tale of The Three Little Pigs by making the three different houses and the cauldron at the end where the wolf met his destiny.  Very funny narration by Toby Marlow and two other members of the group and the tale had a very different ending –  ‘Due to South Oxfordshire’s planning regulations the brick house had to be bulldozed and the three little pigs died too!’

Niki Schafer from Dwell-Being Interior Design partnered the evening and provided mulled cidar and Danish biscuits.  She said, “Advent calendars are wonderful! We are so fortunate to have a live one in our home town and I’m thrilled to help decorate the town with these kinds of festivities. As an interior designer, I’ll always want to add some sparkle and colour and this time I’ll add a glass of mulled wine to keep us all warm.”

Dave Lamont, Marketing Manager of Henley College said afterwards, “It was fantastic to see so many faces on a cold night.  Acorn did a marvellous job and it has been great to see several of our students involved.”

Niki drew the raffle last night with her children helping her; Finn, Zoe and Genna.  First prize was a designer desk accessory set donated by Sam Evans of Humphreys of Henley, second prize was Nikki’s book ‘Creating Space’ and third prize was a family portrait donated by Barrett & Co.  All moneys raised from the raffles will go to the four chosen charities; British Legion Poppy Appeal, Oceans Project, Henley Youth Centre and Regatta for the Disabled.
