Thank you for your support - Panto pay it forwards 2023

Thank you to all our generous supporters who have helped to raise an incredible £9,620 for our Panto Pay it Forwards appeal this year!

We have distributed 555 free tickets with more still to be given out to people who would not otherwise be able to attend Beauty and the Beast this year. This includes 238 free tickets for children in receipt of pupil premium funding from 6 local schools, in both rural and town centre locations, and 317 tickets for community groups including Hungerford Youth Centre, West Berkshire Young Carers, Thatcham Family Hub, Citizen's Advice, Eight Bells for Mental Health, Community Youth Project, Educafe, Fairclose Centre, Home Start Family Hub, Sensory Consortium, Two Saints and Audrey Needham House.

We would also like to thank Berkshire Freemasonry, the Trelix Charitable Trust, Waitrose Community Matters and Newbury Building Society Community Scheme for their support. We believe passionately that cost should not be a barrier to experiencing the magic of panto, and are delighted that we are able to support so many local people to attend this year.

Beauty and the Beast runs from Friday 24 November to Sunday 31 December 2023. Find out more and book your tickets here.
