We’re inviting schools to design a Pantomime Dame costume!

Having a creative lesson and want something different to inspire the children? Our design a panto dame costume competition may be just the ticket!

Get creative and let those fashion design skills shine through! We want to see your pupil’s panto dame outfits… it can be anything, think big! From a helicopter hat to dragon dress and everything in between, we want to see your classes creations.

The winning drawing will be created and showcased at The Courtyard – and if it’s extra special, it may even make it on to the main stage! The winning pupil’s school will also win 10 free tickets to the show.

All of the entries will go on display as a pop-up exhibition at The Courtyard throughout pantomime.
