Review of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
8th December 2009 to 2nd January 2010.
Oxford Daily Info has a review here: "a great night out for all of the family, providing humour for the grown-up audience members as well as for the slightly younger, more excitable ones... before whisking the kids off to the traditional panto, be sure to consider this timeless classic instead".
