Fee Fi Fo Fum, what a weekend it was at the Great South Run!
Our cast of Jack and the Beanstalk were THRILLED to be involved earlier this month, as thousands of runners and spectators gathered at Southsea Seafront to take part in the races and show their support.
As part of their royal duties, Dame Trott and King Eric were special guests at the Saturday Junior & Mini Races where they fired the starting gun for the 1.5km and 2.5km mini races and also gave out prizes for the best panto themed fancy-dress!
The following day, Team Pompey Panto cast members Sean Smith and Millie overcame blood, sweat and tears to SMASH the 10-mile race! Sean and Millie were raising money for our Runner Beanz initiative to support local groups and charities that wouldn’t normally be able to come and see a pantomime. You can still support their efforts HERE.
Here’s a special message from Sean filmed after he’d caught his breath back…
A special mention must also go to Dame Trott for completing the main event herself. Take a look at the moment h̶e̶ she crossed the finish line.
Of course, you can also support Team Pompey Panto from November 27th until January 2nd as they embark on a GIGANTIC adventure in Jack and the Beanstalk. Tickets are available HERE.
