Love blooms at panto

Mick Ferris

The cast of the pantomime Snow White, showing at the Broadway Barking, helped a man propose to his girlfriend on Sunday live on stage.

Months in the planning, cast and theatre staff joined in the subterfuge to help Paul Greed appear on stage and ask Emily Harris to be his wife.

Paul got down on one knee in traditional fashion and as Emily said yes a shower of confetti rained down, courtesy of the theatre’s technical manager.

On Saturday, the cast were out in force for the Barking Mad About Christmas event in Barking Town Square.
