The Henley Players have been putting on productions since 2011 and the director of this year's show, Marina Griggs, has praised the company of amateur performers for their production of Cinderella.

She said: "We have a fantastic group and we really enjoy putting these shows on twice a year.

"Our summer show mainly focuses on our junior cast so this is the big show of the year."

The Henley Community Centre hosted three performances over the weekend, all set against a dazzling wintery backdrop.
