Rumpy Pumpy archiveBased on the true story of two nice ladies from the Hampshire WI, Jean Johnson and Shirley Landels, who set out on a campaign for the decriminalisation of prostitution and to improve conditions for working girls. As the conflicting worlds of Women's Institute members and working girls collide for tea and crumpets, comedy and chaos ensues in this very British musical comedy. Jean Johnson and Shirley Landels are contacted by brash brothel Madame, Holly Spencer, who claims to have the "perfect brothel" that they are looking for - a health and safety checked brothel that the police and town Councillors are aware of, "they're our best customers". Travelling to Amsterdam and to the Bunny Farm Brothel in Nevada, Jean and Shirley are universally unimpressed by working conditions. When they finally do find the "perfect brothel" in New Zealand, stripped of pimps, crime or Madames, they decide to head home and set up their own mobile brothel on the streets of Winchester to change people's hearts and minds.
