As featured on BBC1's 'The One Show': GDS' production of Hi-de-Hi!

Yes, you did read that correctly! Grantham Dramatic Society's production of Hi-de-Hi was featured in Friday 13th May's edition of popular BBC1 programme 'The One Show'.

'The One Show' attracts around 5 million viewers, and included GDS in the Rippon's Britain section, fronted by Angela Rippon. Angela played the famous xylophone jingle and even delivered the classic line "Hello campers! Hi-de-Hi" in a Welsh accent, before mentioning our partnership with the Grantham Journal. The spot also featured a clip from our Summer Holiday video and showed our very own Yellowcoats dancing at the Guildhall.

Check it out below:

Our competitions in the Journal have included a silly face contest, plus a spaghetti eating competition. There is still time to enter the Mr or Ms Universe competition with it's closing date being on Friday 20th May.

GDS presents latest video for Hi-de-Hi!

GDS have created a new video to promote Hi-de-Hi, on at the Guildhall from 25 to 28 May. The video is inspired by 1950s summer holidays, so there was only one way to go... It was great fun to shoot, and features an affectionate tribute to Cliff Richard! Look out for stunning special effects (!), an irate Park Keeper and Yellowcoats dancing in public places. Enjoy!
