Market Rasen Mail photographer Linda Oxley got more than she bargained for when she paid a visit to Nettleton and Moortown WI.

Speaker for the evening was Ruth Andrews, who gave a lively performance on the history of the pantomime dame.

Pantomime goes back to Roman times and the faceless masks of the crowd echoes back to the Greek era.

Many famous people have taken the role of the pantomime dame in modern times - George Robey, Danny La Rue, Christopher Biggins.... and now Linda Oxley, who was thrust into the limelight when a volunteer was called for - oh yes she was.
