A new comedy about a loud and eccentric mayor and her equally silly colleagues. Set in the present day in the fictional borough of Mansford, Madam Mayor merrily satirises middle England, local politics, daft bureaucracy and the deluded nature of small-time power.

The councillors at Mansford are always getting hot under the collar about something. If it's not the latest Brexit updates or a Royal visit, it's a recycling issue or a pothole saga or another wheelie bin disaster.
