THERE is lots and lots going on in April, writes Katherine Nightingale from Fenland Arts, especially over the schools holidays, but it doesn’t stop when the children go back to school.

There is lots of theatre this month with MADAOS performing the great 80s classic Footloose, the senior March Youth Theatre bringing you The Wiz, an adaptation of The Wizard of Oz and Whittlesey Youth Theatre performing Bugsy Malone at March Town Hall.

March then opens up for the St George’s Fayre a fabulous community event with a host of entertainment, stalls and attractions for all the family.

If you have an event you would like us to list in the Citizen or on our website, email

Have a good Easter, Katherine
