Theatre-goers in Aldeburgh were surprised to find a darling visitor when they headed to a local performance.

Actor Tim McInnerny, surprised those attending the opening night of A Crag Path Christmas with its cast of West End performers at Aldeburgh’s Jubilee Hall.

One audience member said: “There was a scene in which the reading of the much-loved poem The Night Before Christmas was recited by a member of the audience.

“So what a lovely surprise to see the familiar face of someone who’d been in Blackadder, Game of Thrones and Dr Who on our local stage!”

The performance was also a fundraising event for the Alde & Ore Estuary Trust.
