Shap Chippy, Radio and Theatre!

The Highlights Touring Theatre scheme brings amazing professional productions to far flung places… like Shap! Our local impresario, Janet Wood managed to secure one of the bestselling shows the Box of Tricks Theatre company have ever put on for our village.  We agreed we could produce 50 meals for 7 pm on a Sunday evening – but we had to increase it to 71 due to popular demand – I wish I had been able to stay and enjoy it – it looked  terrific and starred two faces recognisable from TV – Ben Ryan Davies (Waterloo Road) and Jessica Forrest (Coronation Street and Hollyoaks) as well as Julie Edwards and Russell Richardson.

Our other recent adventure was when we took part in a local “Chip Bun Challenge” hosted by Yakkers – Simon Yaxley – of Lakeland Radio.

We did ourselves proud with a Shap Chippy special – A chip butty with one of our own smoked halloumi fritters smothered in curry source…
