Production of ‘Oliver’ musical tackling food poverty in Lincoln | ITV News

The team behind a production of the musical ‘Oliver!’, being staged at Lincoln Cathedral, have asked every audience member to bring one item of food with them to each performance.

They’ve already collected a tonne of donations, which will now be packed off and sent to a local food bank – in keeping with the social conscience of Charles Dickens’s original book.

ITV News Calendar reporter Katharine Walker has been seeing how the theatre group’s scheme has been getting on.
