What happens during Panto?

...Pure magic!

We believe that what happens backstage can be just as interesting – if not more so.

We invited Jenny Barnard of Pop Up Portraits Ltd to follow one performance of Sleeping Beauty (Sunday 5th February 2023) and capture the magic which takes place.

So much work goes into backstage to make Pantomime happen; Props, Make-up, Costumes, Scenery, Chaperoning, Lighting, Sound…. the list goes on. 

Please find a collection of the beautifully photographed snapshot of life – the “magic” backstage.
