South Hill Park panto to go ‘live’ for sick children
November 12, 2012
Hundreds of poorly youngsters will enjoy a pantomime from their bedside after several children’s hospices and hospitals signed up to receive a live streamed performance.
South Hill Park’s pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk will be broadcasted live via the internet on Thursday, December 13.
Children at Naomi House in Winchester, Helen House in Oxford, Shooting Star House in Surrey, Christopher’s Children Hospice in Guildford and Little Bridge House in North Devon will be saying ‘Oh yes we can’ next month.
Many hospitals are considering the opportunity with St Thomas’s in London and Basingstoke and North Hampshire keen to participate.
The project has been made possible through an £141,000 Arts Council grant, which launched SHP Live – focusing on live streaming performances to reach a wider audience.
