Tripe revival in Hertfordshire

The Tripe Marketing Board has congratulated a Hertfordshire amateur dramatic group after their successful production of The Fosdyke Saga, a true-life tale of love, intrigue and rivalry in the Lancashire tripe industry.

The Corvus Amateur Dramatic Society (based in Royston) staged the play - written by Alan Plater and based on the popular cartoon strip by tripe hero Bill Tidy - in the run-up to World Tripe Day 2014 celebrations.

Bill Tidy himself was able to meet the cast and production crew, as pictured above - Mr Tidy is so tall that he is contractually obligated to appear seated in all group photographs. 

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said he was delighted that the people of Royston had showed such an interest in tripe.  "People tell us that there's too much tripe on TV, so it's always encouraging when it appears on the stage instead," he said.

The performance also features in the TMB's 2015 Diary, which was published yesterday and which has already piqued the interest of tripe lovers across the globe.
