Panto Programme Artwork Competition!

Thursday 8th October 2015

Is your child a budding designer or artist?

We’re excited to launch a new competition to design a piece of artwork for the Dick Whittington programme.

This is an opportunity for young designers to have their work seen by more than 45,000 people – and is open to 5-11 year olds, who must submit a coloured drawing inspired by the theme of Dick Whittington.

The winning drawing will be turned into a piece of artwork that will feature in the programme. The winner will not only get a signed copy but a family ticket to see the panto, a chance to meet some of the cast of Dick Whittington, a family meal in Cast, the Playhouse restaurant, and a goody bag.

Four runners-up will also be included in the programme and win a family ticket to the show. Every child who enters will see their artwork on display for a limited time at the Playhouse.

For some inspiration here’s a sneak preview at the costumes and set designs. Drawings and model boxes created by designer Tim Meacock.

The competition runs until Friday 30 October and all drawings will be judged by a panel including director Kenneth Alan Taylor and stars John Elkington and Tim Frater.

Henry Filloux-Bennett, Head of Marketing and Communications said: “This year we wanted to do something truly unique, offering children from across the city the chance to get involved in a really creative way and to have their drawings celebrated in the souvenir programme and also in the building as part of an amazing panto art exhibition.”

Drawings should be sent to: Nottingham Playhouse, Wellington Circus, Nottingham, NG1 5AF, or dropped in at the Box Office for the attention of the Marketing team. Please include your name, age phone number and email address in your entries. Good luck!

Dick Whittington runs at Nottingham Playhouse from 27 November – 16 January.
