Just a couple of weeks after winning Crufts with Sully, Ashleigh Butler is on the road with an Easter Panto- “Alice In Wonderland”.
Along with Leslie Ash and Dave Benson Phillips, Ashleigh and Sully opened the tour on Friday (March 23rd) and visit a few places around the UK until April 15th in this Panto style production, presented by Anton Benson Productions.
Easter Panto is becoming more popular each year, and productions are opening or in rehearsal this week to provide entertainment for the Easter school holidays.
I visited Crufts recently, and caught up with Ashleigh, her Mum, Penny and furry friends Sully and Winter. During panto at Wycombe this year Winter was a very tiny eight week old puppy. Not any more. Here is Winter a couple of months on!
A great picture for Nation Puppy Day!
Here’s Winter and Sully back in January in “Jack & The Beanstalk”.
Sully was Small agility champion for 2018- a major win for Team Butler. We were there to see him speed through the agility courses before winning the trophy. Here’s Andrew Ryan and myself after the first round with Ashleigh.
