BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey presenter Mark Carter will star as Fleshcreep in Godalming’s first professional family pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk,

The producers of Godalming’s first professional family pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk at The Borough Hall from 12 – 24 December, are delighted to reveal that the popular BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey presenter Mark Carter will star as Fleshcreep, the Giant’s villainous henchman…boo hiss!
Mark can’t wait to perform in his first ever panto. He said: “Being part of a panto is always something I’ve fancied. Best of all, it’s on home soil in Surrey. In my role as the baddie, I’m expecting plenty of boos but hopefully some cheers along the way too!”
