Annual Theatre Royal pantomime poster competition is launched

The Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds, is launching its annual poster competition to celebrate this year’s pantomime, Dick Whittington … and there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs for the winner.

Youngsters in three age groups – under eight, eight to 12 and 13-plus – are invited to create their own poster based on Dick Whittington and to let their imaginations run riot with pens, pencils, crayons, paints, tissue paper, glitter or anything they choose to make an eye-catching picture.

The winning poster from each of the three age groups, chosen by the cast of the panto, will go on display in the theatre, get featured in the panto programme and will be seen by more than 22,000 people!

The overall winner will win a prize pack including four tickets to the show, a programme signed by the cast, a photograph taken with the cast and a professionally printed version of their winning poster, provided by our sponsors Premier Printers.

The two runners-up will also have their entries displayed in the Theatre during the run of Dick Whittington and will receive two tickets to the show.

All entries should include the artist’s name, age and contact number and be on A4 paper or card.

Closing date for entries is Monday, November 13, and they should be sent to Pantomime Poster Competition, Theatre Royal, Westgate Street, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, IP33 1QR, or dropped off at the Box Office.

Dick Whittington runs from December 1 to January 14 2017 to 14. For tickets go to or call the Box Office on 01284 769505
