“We are so pleased that every year Grand Opera House always helps us out by bringing the Pantomime cast to Highfield,” said Highfield spokesman Richard Sweeting.

“Just because people live in a care home and they can’t get to see a Panto, it is so lovely that the Opera House brings the Panto to us.

“It’s been happening for the last six years and we’ve had many stars through the door and the most important thing of all – it makes our residents happy.” The Three Bears Productions, pantomime finishes on January 5. Pictures David Harrison.
