Carry on Spanking

The Downside

This was a tricky theme to get to grips with. After all, nurse from a Carry On film looks much like any other nurse. (Unless you happen tolook like Kenneth Cope!)

The Upside

Despite the foregoing there was a good go by the attendees. A Rumpo Kid mingled with the crowd, performing close-up magic, which really was quite magic to watch.

Since Carry On films cover from Roman times until after the second World War anyone with a good wardrobe of uniforms had a wide choice open to them.

The costume winners included a happy camper, a Roman Centurion and a stunning recreation of Barbara Windsor's outfit from Carry on Doctor. Numerous nurses and Matrons abounded with starched uniforms and a stern eye for misbehaviour.

The Verdict

A lot of enjoyable nonsense with no coherent plot? It must have been a faithful re-creation then!

(And there really is a Rothwell - it's north of Kettering.)

The Future

I don't think that there is a specific plan to reprise this theme, which is a shame because I would happily watch a repeat.
