Richard House Children’s Hospice in Beckton opened its doors to the Starlight Pantomime Troupe as they performed Sleeping Beauty.

The show was part of the annual Summerfest festival at the hospice, which cares for terminally ill children and provides support for their families.

Hayley Bryant, who plays Fairy Nuff in Sleeping Beauty, said, “Our summer panto is designed to be really engaging and entertaining for the children and we hope that our performance at Richard House gave everyone there a good dose of fun!”

The event also included a local dance performance, a bouncy castle, a demonstration by the Fire Brigade, and art activities.

Volunteers from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills also helped out.
