Panto in the Sun! Oh My! What a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon in Folkestone.. shouting and singing on the confident and hilariously entertaining instruction of local children, who were clearly also having the time of their lives. I really hope that the organisers will soon run further workshops so I can encourage other friends’ children to join in. I will also definitely attend their future shows. Great Stuff!

This was great to watch: young people energised and enjoying performance… The theme – pollution – with real relevance for Folkestone. The crowd loved it – not surprisingly!
Promises of much more to come from the Folkestone Performing Arts Centre.

It was great fun to play with the audiences as the Fairy. I loved the role and thought the message of recycling and not throwing our rubbish in the bins – where the seagulls make a mess – and bringing it home was a good one.
I feel privileged and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the beginnings of bigger things to come for Folkestone. Matthew Hahn & collaborators successfully brought devising, costume, prop and mask making together to create a fun new variation on the traditional Christmas panto – namely the Summer guerilla panto!
