"Frederic, a pirate’s apprentice, falls head-over-heels in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. Frederic is due to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but there’s a snag. Born on 29 February, Frederic discovers that he is technically still a youngster. Although very much in love, his dedication to duty is unshakeable. Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after with Mabel?

Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera is packed full of sentimental pirates, blundering policeman, absurd adventures and improbable paradoxes."

There is no doubt why we all like Antique & Collectors Fairs. You can always find something

unusual that will be the standout piece for your home and, and with some competitive haggling,

you can get it at a great price.

If you want to put a fresh stamp on your home, or are starting a

collection, time spent at “WRENTHAM ANTIQUES & COLLECTORS FAIR” is usually productive and

very enjoyable.

There are approximately 30+ dealers offering a wide range of `goodies` from

Small Items of Furniture, Jewellery, Glass, Ephemera, Silver, Gold etc etc. You will be sure to go

home with something, although possibly not what you had in mind.

Another welcoming aspect is that the ADMISSION IS FREE.

There is also a Delicious assortment of homemade refreshments that are available in the "Vintage Kitchen”

It’s a well known fact that This Fair Strongly supports PACT ANIMAL SANCTUARY. “
