Young artists urged to take part in panto tickets competition
ALADDIN will be paying a visit to Knutsford over the town’s festive weekend.
On November 30 the town plays host to a Christmas market and lights switch-on event.
But in between the two events a pantomime at Knutsford Civic Centre on Toft Road is being staged by the Tailgate Theatre Company.
Supported by Cheshire Peaks and Plains Housing Trust – and organised by Knutsford-based ER Events – the company will be showcasing its take on Aladdin to the town’s residents.
David Heffernan, the founder of ER Events, said: “With the way the Christmas lights switch-on falls there is a gap in the middle and it will keep people in Knutsford and help to bring people in.
“I know the Knutsford Little Theatre do one in 2014, but there’s not one this year and it ties in quite nicely.
“The way that we’ve done the costings we needed the tickets to be affordable, and that’s why we asked Cheshire Peaks and Plains to bring the cost of the tickets down.”
Schoolchildren in Knutsford have a chance to win a ticket for themselves and an adult by taking part in an art competition.
Pupils at St Vincents, Manor Park, Egerton and Bexton schools will all have a chance to win if they draw a picture of their favourite pantomime character.
Entries should be submitted to the school the child attends.
Tickets for the pantomime are £25 for a family (two adults and two children), £10 for adults and £6 children.
To get tickets visit Mr Simms on King Street or buy via PayPal by sending the money to firstname.lastname@example.org.
n ER Events is also putting on a Michael Buble tribute evening at Toft Cricket Club on November 9.
The evening, which includes a hot pot supper, is £20 and tickets can be bought from ticketwarrior.co.uk.
A proportion of the money from the ticket will be donated to Ronald McDonald House, which will help Knutsford youngster Niamh Curbishley.
