    Catshill Social Club, Meadow Road, Catshill, B61 0JJ

    Two fine singing/songwriting/performing talents combine to produce a stunning synergistic whole. Contemporary and traditional music at its very best.

    Ruth Angell has been passionate about her music since the age of three (and a half) when she dreamt that her parents wouldn't let her play violin.....despite that she went on to study violin at The Birmingham Conservatoire and playing with many fine bands including Ashley Hutchins Rainbow Chasers.

    Becky Mills cut her teeth in the music world when she joined her dad’s rock band, Midlife Crisis....dad was also a huge folk fan and took Becky around folk clubs. She is a quirky songwriter and a former member of acclaimed trio Waking The Witch

    Another great night in store at Catshill...what fun we shall have

    The Trotts are forced into selling their beloved cow Daisy to raise the rent money, however Jack is tricked by the evil Fleshcreep on the way to the market and returns home with a bag of beans instead of the gold he had expected, Dame Trott is so angry that she throws the beans out of the window and sends the boys to bed.

    In the meantime Jack’s girlfriend, Jill has been captured by Fleshcreep and taken to the Giant's castle up in Cloudland. In order to rescue Jill and Daisy, Jack must climb a giant beanstalk which has appeared during a magical UV scene overnight.

    Once in Cloudland, he encounters an inept wizard and his group of Elves, Dame Trott, Silly Simon and the others eventually join Jack in Cloudland, the wizard warns them of Blunderbore’s pet yeti, who roams free in Cloudland.

    With the help of the Panto Fairy they manage to rescue Jill and Daisy from the castle but with Fleshcreep and Blunderbore in hot pursuit, will they manage to escape back down the beanstalk to safety and a happy ending?
