WHEN Petworth costume maker Jackie Smith offered to ‘help out’ for Graffham Rustics’ production of Pinocchio she little realised she would be taking on full responsibility for all the costumes.

Rustics chairman Neil Castle said: “She has pulled out all the stops to dress the cast and made many of the costumes from scratch herself.”

They will be on show when Graffham Rustics take to the stage tonight for the first of three performances of the musical version of the family favourite.

Performances will be tonight,(May 17) tomorrow (May 18) and Saturday, May 19, starting at 7.30pm in The Empire Hall, Graffham.
