Saul Fairholm sponsor Spilsby Pantomime

Saul Fairholm sponsor Spilsby Pantomime

 

Saul Fairholm were thrilled to sponsor the Spilsby Local Amateur Pantomime Society’s 2019 production of Cinderella. 

The show ran for five nights from February 19 to 23, along with a children’s matinee performance on the last day.

The pantomime was scripted and directed by one of our clients Bruce Knight, and the music for the pantomime was arranged and performed by one of our Associates, Greg Ward, who also directed the music for the show.

In 2018, Greg was appointed as chairman of the Spilsby Local Amateur Pantomime Society having been their principal musician since 2012.

As well as being an active committee member of Spilsby Local Amateur Society, Bruce also runs and is actively involved on a project to restore the Spilsby Theatre, a Grade II listed building that dominates the town of Spilsby. As a practice we actively support the efforts being made by Bruce and his team in seeking to bring about the restoration of this historic building.

Spilsby, of course, is famous as the birth place and home town of Sir John Franklin, the famous explorer who sought to discover the Northwest Passage. The discovery of his ships under the Arctic Ice; Erebus in 2014 and Terror in 2018; has again opened-up the debate as to which explorer first discovered the Northwest Passage. During John Franklin’s lifetime the Spilsby Theatre was in fact a Court House and it still retains the cells where prisoners were held prior to being tried.

As a practice we are very keen to promote and support the arts and culture within Lincoln itself and throughout Lincolnshire as a whole and are delighted that members of our team are actively involved in producing and performing in this respect.

We’d like to thank Ash Keer for giving us permission to use photographs taken by him from the show.
