Starlight’s Christmas Pantomime Sets Sail

This year’s Starlight Pantomime Robinson Crusoe has set sail on its twelve-week adventure across hospitals up and down the UK. Oh yes it has! The pantomime gives hundreds of children the chance to escape from the reality of treatment into the heroic tales of Crusoe and his nemesis Captain Hogwash.

A big thank you to Starlight Pantomime who visited our young patients today. They entertained and interacted with all the children. Thank you for bringing a little adventure to their hospital stay.

Starlight’s Christmas Pantomime Tour started in style at Evelina Children’s Hospital in November where the audience of children and their families cheered for their hero, booed the dastardly Captain Hogwash and warmed up their vocal chords with their own versions of Moana, The Greatest Showman and even Baby Shark!

The Pantomime will travel to over 80 hospitals across the country all through the Christmas period until January. Whether it is by a bedside, in a waiting room or on the ward floor, the panto team make sure that every child who wants to see Robinson Crusoe and the gang will have a chance to get into the festive spirit!
