He’s behind you!
Families got their year off to a rib-tickling start during an afternoon of panto fun at The Nook.
Actors from London’s Head2Head Sensory Theatre paid their first visit to the hospice and put on a special performance of Robin Hood.
It was a multi-sensory experience, with the three stars interacting with children and lots of bubbles, bright colours and brilliant props used throughout.
It was also the first time sign language has been incorporated into one of hospice’s pantos, making it very inclusive.
“It was a fantastic performance and the care floor was ringing with the sound of laughter,” said EACH Play Specialist Heidi Foster.
“It was also an occasion when one little boy’s dream came true, as he’d always wanted to star in a panto and was chosen to be King Richard. He loved it!
“Our thanks go to the Head2Head Sensory Theatre. The three actors were brilliant and mingled with families throughout the performance.
“We’re also very thankful to The Clown Doctors, who were there to get everyone in the spirit beforehand and entertained them after.”
In total, 63 people attended, with lots of big family groups, including siblings and grandparents.
Families were also treated to a table full of donations from Center Parcs, including a variety of art sets, stencils, stamps and jigsaw puzzles.
