The Lincoln-based production company is currently celebrating its 20th year of touring.

In the run up to the show, one of Gunby Hall’s famous feline residents took to the stage.

Committee – so-called because her appears to have been designed by committee – was snapped by volunteer photographer Mike Pounder.

Visitor experience manager Astrid Gatenby said: “We welcomed more than 200 people to the show – it was a lovely evening.”
