Diamond Jubilee: Village revives Coronation musical

An award winning musical is being revived as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in a Hampshire village.

Amateur performers in the New Forest village of Copythorne are staging To Look at the Queen, which was last put on for the Silver Jubilee in 1977.

Written by retired BBC producer John Smith, the play won a regional theatre award in 1977.

The story revolves around residents of the fictional Dover Street, a close-knit community in the East End of London, and aims to capture the spirit of the early 1950s.
