JUST when the festive fun seems to be over there is still more jollity to come with panto at Yeadon Town Hall.

The Yeadon Charities Association pantomime is one of the longest running series in the country. This month it will stage Cinderella/The Magical Pantomime!

The organisation has been putting on performances since 1939 but the history of panto in the town goes back even further than that.

These photographs, from the Aireborough Historical Society archives, show productions spanning the decades - with the oldest dating back nearly a century.

While the bottom two pictures are from the 1950s and 1960s the rest pre-date the very first panto produced by Yeadon Charities. They may have been the work of the Yeadon Pantomime Company, which was founded in 1904.

The company is thought to have staged the 1935 production of Mother Goose, which is featured in the central photograph.

Also taken in the 1930s, the top left photograph shows May Garbutt, who later became May Baker when she married. She is believed to have been a regular performer in Yeadon pantomimes.

The actress in the top right photograph was pictured in 1922 and was playing a character called Gretchen.
