like a Dame! There's nothing.

POPULAR panto dame Iain Lauchlan dropped into Coventry Resource Centre for the blind recently - and was greeted witha rousing rendition of the South Pacific favourite: "There is nothing like a Dame"! The Belgrade Theatre regular met members of The Monday Club and had a "wee chat" about his life from growing up in Scotland, playing in his folk band before taking up drama, which led him to producing and performing in pantomines while also taking part in TV favourites Playschool, Fingermouse, Taggart as well as creating chiuldren's TV programme The Tweenies.

Iain sang songs with his guitar, incliuding Streets of London and Annie's Song.

Iain said: "I loved being at Monday Club. I didn't realise all this was going on, it's amazing."

Iain helped to set up pre-pantomine touch tours for the blind at the Belgrade Theatre.

Also during the morning, Amy Clennell, who has cerebal palsy and can neither see or use her hands to write, presented Iain with the book she has written called Mystical Tales of Unitalia, which is her interpretation of well-known tales like Cinderella. It is available from Amazon for PS2.75 or via the resource centre for PS3.50.
