MEET “OLD PAINT”
Under career carer Carol’s care, meet “Old Paint” the first resident of Equidae, Great Yarmouth’s upcoming rest home for retired pantomime horses. They are to be found living in the large picture windowed room at the front of what was Beales / Palmer’s department store in the Market Place.
To celebrate the opening of the home, the renowned local Country & Western DJ Edgar “Gar” Feral will, three times a day, entertain the animal and hopefully, by extension, an audience.
If you don’t mind appearing rude whilst looking into other people’s windows, you are invited to witness “Old Paint” at play in their rooms and to view the splendid apartment from the street.
This is the fourth rest home that Equidae has opened, following much sought after accommodation in Rhyl, Margate and Drury Lane, London.
Nb. Due to the dearth of work that “Old Paint” has suffered over the last eighteen months of their working life (with no help from Government funding), a voluntary collection is to be taken after each show*.
*All funds are to be returned to the festival in grateful thanks for their sponsored support of “Old Paint” over the last few months.
