PRIOR to it performing Beauty and the Beast, Seaton Pantomime Society has named its pantomime chicken.

The group held a competition to name the bird, which was won by Lynsey Beardsell, of Meadway, Seaton, who called it Cullen.

The reason behind the name was that originally the group was going to have a seagull and the name came from culling.

The production is set to take place at Seaton Town Hall, from Wednesday, February 18, to Saturday, February 21.

Tickets, priced £6 for adults and £4 for under 14s, are available from Byrne Jones, The Square, Seaton, and are selling fast.
