Livestream Harrogate’s Panto? Oh, yes we will!

Two of Harrogate’s historic institutions met today, with a generous donation from Bettys & Taylors to Harrogate Theatre.

They showed their support for a great cause – Associate Artist Marcus Romer’s ambitious plan to livestream this year’s pantomime into hospitals, hospices and adult social care homes across North Yorkshire.

Here at Harrogate Theatre, we’re really proud of our much-loved annual pantomime, which is written and directed in-house – and we don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun this Christmas.

So, we’ve planned a number of projections and screenings of this year’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk, which families can enjoy together in partnership with Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust, where will screen the production in children’s wards, waiting areas and even the lecture theatre of Harrogate Hospital and Ripon Hospital.

This project is ground-breaking for Harrogate and will potentially change the way we look at inclusivity in the arts, making a real difference to people over the festive break.

“I am delighted that we are able to work closely with Harrogate Theatre to turn this idea into a reality and make such a positive difference for patients, their relatives and our staff. We know how popular the pantomime is and it’s fantastic that community organisations can come together in this way”
