The Grants Committee have highlighted a couple of things the Pantomime Company may wish to consider

 

  • The Financial position looks to be unsustainable for next year and The Pantomime Company might like to look at an alternative venue
  • The Council has received feedback about inappropriate Ad-Libs and Innuendos which The Pantomime Company should be made aware of as this may have a detrimental effect on future ticket sales /return customers
