Clarks Village Will Sponsor The Bristol Hippodrome's 2019 Pantomime DICK WHITTINGTON
The Bristol Hippodrome has confirmed that Somerset outlet shopping centre Clarks Village will be sponsoring its 2019 pantomime Dick Whittington, which stars soap legend Shane Richie in the title role.
The partnership between the theatre and Clarks Village - which is home to more than 90 designer and high street brands - will build on the success of last year's production of Cinderella which was seen by more than 80,000 people, making it the theatre's most successful pantomime to date.
Qdos Entertainment, the largest producer of pantomimes in the world, is again bringing the magic of pantomime to Bristol with its production of Dick Whittington. The show features sets and costumes from the London Palladium production and more star casting is set to be revealed in the coming weeks.
In a bid to reach a wider family audience in Bristol and the surrounding area, The Bristol Hippodrome and Clarks Village will work together on a range of exciting projects, including Dick Whittington ticket competitions, fundraising initiatives and meet-and-greet opportunities. Clarks Village will also be supporting a number of assisted performances of Dick Whittington, which cater for customers with additional needs.
Chris Davis, Centre Manager at Clarks Village says, "We can't wait to share with you the exciting plans we have in the build up to the pantomime season. Although the streets might not literally be paved with gold all the way to The Bristol Hippodrome, we are certain that by working with the team we'll be able to bring some magical performances that all ages will treasure for years to come."
Jenny Hutchinson, Theatre Director at The Bristol Hippodrome says, "We are delighted to be working with Clarks Village this year. It's critically important to us that pantomime is enjoyed by the community, and we open our doors to everyone. By working in collaboration with Clarks Village, we can help to create memories and encourage even more families to spend time together this Christmas while keeping this wonderful British family tradition alive. I'm sure this year's pantomime will delight even more audiences this Christmas, and will continue to deliver real and measurable benefits for all."
Dick Whittington runs at The Bristol Hippodrome from Saturday 7th December 2019 to Sunday 5th January 2020. Tickets start from £13 and can be booked now from atgtickets.com/Bristol
