Thanks to the generous support of our audiences, we have been able to give 150 theatre tickets to children and young people to see our new family Christmas show, Robin Hood.

Audience donations towards our Pay It Forward campaign means that children and young people who might not have had the chance otherwise, can now have a magical experience this Christmas.

We gifted these theatre tickets for Robin Hood through local charities The Helen Foundation and Young Devon.

For our young people it gives them the opportunity to go and do something fun over Christmas that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford. Christmas is often quite a difficult time for many of the young people we support, and so it gives them a chance to do something enjoyable, have some fun and celebrate Christmas, and for many will be a new experience as lots of the young people have never been to a pantomime before.

Thank you so much for enabling my daughter and I to go to the theatre. Although she was a little dubious at first she loved it and has told her friends about it. I haven’t laughed so much in ages.
