Christmas Heroes

Be a Christmas Hero and give the gift of theatre

Pantomime is often a child’s first experience of theatre, but for many children and their families in Kirklees a festive trip to the theatre just isn’t possible.

Will you be a Christmas Hero? Our annual appeal raises money to bring the magic of pantomime to children and their families, who otherwise may not be able to visit us. For every £19 we raise, we can bring one person to see our festive family Pantomime, Dick Whittington, with a VIP ticket, a programme, and an ice cream.

Pantomime creates magic, offers escapism, and a chance for children and young people to be inspired. 

"Our families and young people absolutely loved the show, for several it was their first time seeing a panto and visiting the theatre. We all had a fantastic time."

The Brunswick Centre

"We can’t tell you how much the children and young people LOVED the panto this year – They all think it was the best yet!! Thank you again for the tickets" 

Barnardo's Young Carers

 “It was our first pantomime in our life but it is love at first sight. Thank you for the children's happiness and for this magic!”

Natalia M, leader of the Ukrainian/British Friendship Group

“I was struggling to buy food and present for Christmas and when I went to get my food pack from the Welcome Centre, they offered us panto tickets for me and my children. We’ve never been to the theatre before, it felt like Christmas.”

“I couldn’t believe it when we got tickets to the Christmas pantomime. My 3 children loved it and it was just magical watching their faces. There’s no way we would have been able to afford to go. It made our Christmas”
