School Panto Online 🎭 🎄

Many schools are cancelling their Christmas festivities due to the new lockdown. But you don’t need to!
We’ve teamed up with Rocketfund and Blue Peter legend Peter Duncan to encourage schools to put their Christmas panto, play or nativity online this year.

It’s a great way to bring some much needed light to the winter ahead and raise money for your school or chosen charity.

How it works:

🎟  Sell your tickets online via Rocketfund
🎥  Access free panto tutorials from Peter Duncan
🎉  Get exclusive tickets for your whole school to watch Peter’s panto online: Jack & the Beanstalk
