panto wheels

Panto Wheels is a charitable project, set up by Cambridge Arts Theatre Trust Ltd, to help children from disadvantaged areas attend the Christmas pantomime by subsidising the cost of travel and/or tickets. For many this is their first experience of theatre and, as pantomime is bright, engaging and fun, it gives a solid foundation for children to develop a relationship with the arts. Engagement with the arts can help children improve their core foundation skills by building confidence and widening perspectives. In our 2018/19 pantomime season the Panto Wheels project helped over 4,300 children from 25 schools and groups experience the magic of Aladdin. We are proud to reach out to the local community, helping children from a range of backgrounds and with diverse needs. This year, with your support we can increase our reach and make sure that even more children enjoy the special shared experience of live theatre at Christmas.

£250 will help 25 children £1,000 will help 200 children £2,500 will help 500 children To make a donation to help even more children attend the pantomime this year, please contact Oleno Netto on 01223 578935 or e-mail If you would like to discuss the educational resources for any of the shows featured in the brochure please contact Rachel Osborne on 01223 578912 or email at
