Panto In A Box: A fairytale collaboration

Do you have a panto-shaped hole in your life? Want your very own panto in a box? 

We are delighted to team up with Brewgooder, a Scottish social enterprise dedicated to investing their profits back into communities in need, to offer our pantomime and beer lovers the chance to get their very own ‘Panto-in-a-box’, and raise funds for our Emergency Fund at the same time.

Each limited-edition ‘Panto In A Box’ selection pack will include beers from Brewgooder, The Wild Beer Co, Mondo Brewing and The Gipsy Hill Brewing Company, as well as theatre snack favourites from Love Popcorn and Tony’s Chocolonely.

Panto lovers will also have the chance – oh yes they will! - to watch an exclusive online performance of an original pantomime, ‘Jack & The Beer Hops’, written by award-winning Scottish author and playwright Johnny McKnight.

Featuring the characters of Dame Mother Gose, her plucky daughter Jack, and ‘fatcat’ Bawrus Wetherspun, this satirical script will be hosted on the Brewgooder website and premier on Saturday 12th December for audiences to laugh, boo and hiss at until Dec 31st 2020.

Each ‘Panto In A Box’ also contains a story booklet written by Johnny McKnight where audiences will be able to learn more each character and the inspiration behind the original performance. 

We are all missing the King’s panto this year, so why not get yourself a pre-Christmas panto gift and help us raise funds? You can purchase your exclusive ‘Panto in a Box’ from the Brewgooder website.

Scottish beer, chocolate and popcorn – what’s not to like?
