Blakelaw Alternative Panto


Young people from Blakelaw worked with local artists to put together an alternative panto for their local community.


Blakelaw Ward Community Partnership

The Blakelaw Community Partnership having completed their Make Arts Happen Training, used their new skills to bring to life the Blakelaw Alternative Pantomine.

Working with young people from the community, the team alongside artist Laura Bridges worked over six weeks to put together a short story through the aid of props, handmade puppets and costumes. Shared with the young people’s and families, young people gained new drama skills and increased their confidence.
