When the Prime Minister announces a visit to the village of Little Heyhoe in recognition of its 100% employment record, the local council has to decide what to do about the thorn in its side: local tramp and drinker Dan Dance. They agree to have him put in the local alms-house but it emerges that as a resident there he is entitled to an inheritance which he spends in the local pub.

There will be a licensed bar and snacks available.
