Abi Titmuss turns-on Farnham!

This year the great showbiz lottery that spits out a celeb or two in the town's direction gifted Abi Titmuss (an "award winning" actress who shot to fame on the back of the John Leslie scandal 7 or 8 years ago) and Andrew Agnew (PC Plum from CBeebies Ballamory) to Farnham to "switch on" the Christmas lights.

Andrew and Abi are appearing in panto at the Anvil in Basingstoke, which is nice.

Andrew tried - and mostly failed - to whip up the crowd to sing a tune from the children's TV show whilst Abi looked pretty dressed in a Rode Dead Cat.

According to Farnham tradition, a countdown from ten commenced before both stars reached out to press an imaginary button atop a balsa box (which was wheeled on stage minutes earlier, contained no visible wires and was not installed by a competent electrician as per Part P of the Building Regulations) -- and Farnham's festive lights were lit!

The event was actually quite fun and extremely well attended.  Oh, and the award Abi Titmuss won? In 2007 she won a Fringe Report Award - Best West End Debut for her role in Two Way Mirror.  Top one!
