Gloucestershire's homegrown panto goes 'Willy Wonka' for charity!

Cast members from The Everyman Theatre's new pantomime, Dick Whittington and His Cat Tweedy, delivered the much-prized golden tickets to its charitable partners this week.

They visited St James City Farm & Riding School and were joined by Scrubditch Care Farm, to unite the pantomime's two charitable partners in the run-up to the launch of this year's new festive show.

With tickets selling fast for the pantomime and with many performances now sold out, the charitable partners and the Everyman Theatre have created a rare Golden Ticket opportunity with a hand-picked selection of prime seats.

The Golden Tickets are the last chance to see these sold-out performances of Dick Whittington and His Cat Tweedy and gives everyone the chance to help vulnerable children and adults throughout Gloucestershire by supporting the two charities.

Mark Goucher, CEO of The Everyman Theatre, said: "This year we are supporting two Gloucestershire charities whose combined work covers much of the county. Here at the theatre, we are passionate about the work of both charities and hugely supportive of the work they undertake.

"Both organisations run fantastic community-based programmes and by offering a limited number of exclusive Golden Tickets, it's a great way to raise additional money for the pantomime charities this year.

"Our target is £20,000 over the whole season and everyone visiting the pantomime this Christmas will have the opportunity to take part and support charitable giving across Gloucestershire."

Golden Tickets are available for selected performances on the 20th - 26th December. With each ticket purchased, £68 will be donated to support the work of the Scrubditch Care Farm in North Cerney and St James City Farm and Riding School in Tredworth.

For information on how to purchase your Golden Ticket and support the work of these amazing organisations, visit  or call the box office on 01242 572573.
