The Best of Richmond and Richmond Theatre invite you to put your business in the spotlight in 2012.
We could be your business’ fairy-godmother in 2012, if you play your part in celebrating the magical pantomime Cinderella which comes to Richmond Theatre this Christmas. 

All you need to do to get your business involved in the magic of this year’s pantomime is to take a picture showing how you are celebrating Cinderella.  You could celebrate the pantomime with a Cinderella themed window display or if this doesn’t apply to your business then make the display in your reception area, dress up your staff or let us know how you will be showing your customers that you are joining in the pantomime fun.
People across the land tap into the magic and fun of pantomime to bring their family together each year at Christmas and we are inviting you to do the same with your ‘work-place family’.  Celebrate Christmas with the spirit of Panto this year by working together as a team to win a fantastic prize for both your business and your staff in 2012. 

Fret not if you fear that you will not be able to make it to the ball – like Cinderella’s fairy Godmother we will be on hand with host of props and panto paraphanalia to ensure that with one wave of our wand you have everything that you need to make an impact!
This could be a fairy-tale come true for one lucky business – winning a magical night out at the theatre for the whole team, cheering on a colleague who’s appearing in the show, as well as valuable promotional opportunities for your business.
