Xmas Pantomime

For many years our club has treated children and their families to a night out at the Pantomime


As with our sponsorship of concerts at the Pavilion (please see separate page for information) 2019 proved to be our last pantomime outing before Covid turned the world upside down for all of us.

Families from Millmead Children's Centre and young people from other local schools were our guests. The children get free programmes and  raffle tickets and there are ice creams for all.

And we are able to raise funds - much of it through the generosity of local businesses who place adverts in the Xmas programmes - which go to support our club's Cinderella Fund  charitable giving. If we can help it, everyone shall go to the Ball.

And so it was that the last performance was Cinderella and children and adults had the same guarunteed night of magic and nostalgia. And just look at some of the many other pantomime favourites which we have enjoyed over the years.

We have had a long association with the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Broadstairs who put on these performances and never disappoint.We value them as an important community asset around whom so many community groups are able to operate. They are having a hard time at the moment, unable to put on the many productions which so many of us enjoy. We wish them well and look forward to a time when they are up and running once more.

And when Covid is behind us.  Oh Yes It Is! It nearly is!
