Dear Parents / Carers,
I am writing to give details of the Whiteparish Pantomime visit. The school had originally reserved tickets for pupils and families for a performance of Cinderella at Salisbury Playhouse, the theatre however postponed this performance in July due to ‘on-going uncertainty around COVID regulations.’ Faced with this cancellation the decision was taken to secure tickets at the Mayflower theatre in Southampton.
We are therefore, pleased to inform you that we have managed to book tickets for the whole school to attend a performance of Cinderella at the Mayflower theatre in Southampton. This trip will only be for pupils due to the number of tickets available. The performance will be 1:30pm on Monday 13th December. The children will be travelling to the venue by coach, and the coach will depart Whiteparish at 12:45pm. Children will therefore be able to eat lunch as normal on the Monday. The children will be due to return to school by 4:30pm and should be collected as usual from the school playground.
Children gaining the experience of seeing a live performance in a theatre is an important part of our wider curriculum offer and will provide a lovely whole school event as part of our wider Christmas celebrations. The cost of the trip will be £17.50 per pupil and payment will be through School Gateway, details of which will be sent out shortly. As we need to confirm numbers on Monday 15th November to secure places, ticket payments will need to be made by Friday 12th November latest.
Permission for the trip will be included in the payment process.
