A FUN-FILLED drama has captured fond memories of a famous British institution.

Mikron Theatre Company is telling the story of Butlin's - holiday huts, bonny babies and knobbly knees.

Redcoats is being performed at Winsford Academy Theatre on Grange Lane at 7.30pm on Friday, September 13. There will be two acts of approximately 45 minutes with an interval.

Founded in 1972, Mikron is well known for its shows which look at aspects of everyday British life from the Women's Institute and the NHS to stories about suffragettes and lifeboats.

The show is being organised by Over Allotments Association after they linked up with the touring theatre company when they hosted an allotment show Losing The Plot.

John Malam, vice chairman of Over Allotments, said: "We've brought Mikron back to Winsford each year since then and regularly give them on of the largest audiences of their autumn tour."

Almost 200 people have already booked and there is only seating capacity for 300 at the school's theatre so people are advised to book to avoid disappointment.
