Pampering and Panto for One Special Princess for a Day

14 December 2016

Carriageworks Theatre has teamed up with Securitas UK to aid Wooden Spoon charity this holiday season bringing a very special young person a night out she won’t ever forget at Cinderella this Thursday 15 December!

One special young girl was chosen in a Yorkshire wide search and after much deliberation with judges wishing they could grant the prize to everyone nominated. Our winner will be surprised at school, crowned Princess for the Day and take a ride home in a fancy car where she will be dressed to impress for her adoring public. Next she will be whisked into Leeds for a special performance of Cinderella at Carriageworks Theatre and get an exclusive meet and greet with the cast of Leeds’ Traditional Pantomime.

The panto audience will be informed that they are in the presence of short-term royalty and asked to give what they can to the Wooden Spoon charity when volunteers shake buckets at the end of the night.

Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. From sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and sports activity areas to respite, medical and community care, we fund around 70 projects each year that support disadvantaged and disabled children. Since our founding in 1983, we’ve distributed in excess of £24 million, helping over 1 million young people.

Carriageworks Theatre is a modern venue located in the Electric Press on Millennium Square programming a wide variety of theatre and film and events for the whole family. It is the proud home of the Leeds Civic Arts Guild, the Carriageworks Young Theatre Makers and a wide range of weekly classes open to the Leeds community.
