Children around the region have been taking part in this year’s pantomime arts and crafts competition, with dozens of castles, stained glass pictures and Beauty and the Beast-themed artwork being submitted from children as young as three.
“I am always amazed by the imagination behind the entries as well as the skills and creativity used to make them,” said the pantomime’s director and writer, Clare Allen. “Such a lot of effort has obviously gone into each one, making it a very hard task to pick out the winners. A massive thank you to everyone who took part.”
The joint winners of the category for entries from children aged 6 and under were Carmen and Harrison de Montes with Maisie Wilson as runner-up; the winner of the category for entries from children aged 7 and over was Harlow Dale with Katie Brice as runner-up; the winner of the best coloured-in picture or 2-D artwork was Eli Wallace with Daniel Brice as runner-up. The Director’s Prize for the most imaginative entry was won by Archie Dale.
Some of the artwork from the competition will be displayed in the Theatre during the run of the pantomime until Sunday 9 January
