Sponsor a child to experience the magic of Panto this Christmas!

Once Upon A Time:

What is more Christmassy than going to the Panto and what better Panto than Peter Pan, the classic story of the boy that never grew up? We all want children to have a magical time at Christmas but the sad reality for many children from deprived backgrounds or in care in this area is unlike Peter they have to grow up too fast. Many do not get the childhood experiences at Christmas that we had, and now treasure. YMCA Cambridgeshire & Peterborough in partnership with The Cresset and Peterborough City Council want to change that reality and we need your help to do it!

Christmas for many of these children is very different to ours; they are not surrounded by a loving family, there’s no family Christmas dinner, or visits to see Santa at the local shopping centre.

Many dream about the fairytale Christmas they see in the media or that their friends enjoy. With your help, together we can bring a little of the Christmas magic into their lives by inviting you to sponsor places for these deprived children at this year’s Panto Peter Pan held at The Cresset

The Package

We are offering local business leaders the chance to attend this year’s Pantomime, and to sponsor a child from a deprived background or in care in the Peterborough area. The child you sponsor will also be your VIP guests for the evening.

The package includes a family ticket (2x Adults and 2x Children) to see Peter Pan at The Cresset Theatre, with ice cream and drinks during the interval. The package will also 1x Free corporate ticket for you to come along and enjoy the magic of Peter Pan.

This is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to spread Christmas joy to children in need this Christmas by showing them you care. You also get the opportunity to come along and see the magic of Panto yourself.

About Peter Pan

The story of Peter Pan is a classic story that every child knows. This year Premier Pantomimes and The Cresset will bring the magic to life on stage with all the traditional pantomime magic. Starring Steven Arnold (Coronation Street’s Ashley Peacock) as Captain Hook and James Fletcher (Hollyoaks’ Dylan Jenkins) as Peter Pan, it’s Peterborough’s biggest and best traditional family pantomime. Imagine the smile on the child’s face as the lights go up and the music starts, or when Peter Pan takes to the air. For many it will be the 1st time they say ‘He’s behind you!’ and ‘Oh no he isn’t and Oh yes he is!’. Who knows the child you sponsor may be inspired to take up dance or drama at school and become the next big thing!
