Hello for Christmas ticket giveaway

Arts charity gives away 100 tickets to raise a smile this Christmas.

Lichfield Garrick is putting a smile on people’s faces this festive season with a 100 ticket giveaway – oh yes it is! As a thank you to the local community for continuing to support the theatre Hello Lichfield will see families and groups win tickets to see this year’s pantomime or one of the Theatre’s festive studio shows, The Bah Humbug Club or Hans Christian Anderson’s The Ugly Duckling & Other stories.

Matt Clay, Interim Executive Manager said: “The Christmas season is back with a bang and we can’t wait! With larger casts, new writing and magical moments for everyone to enjoy we are delighted to kick start the season with our festive ticket giveaway! Not only do the team at Lichfield Garrick want to say thank you to our communities but we hope a visit to theatre will bring some much needed joy and an escape from the stresses we are all facing in our day to day lives.”

To enter the Hello Lichfield ticket giveaway, members of the public are invited to tag Lichfield Garrick in a video on social media with the hashtag #HelloLichfield, shouting ‘Hello Lichfield’ then telling the Theatre, in the post, what show they would like to see and why they should win the tickets.

The huge ticket giveaway builds on the Arts Charity’s Family Ticket Sponsorship programme, meaning more moments of festive joy for more people in the local community. Over the last five years, over 150 families have attended Lichfield Garrick’s pantomime thanks to the generosity of local businesses. In addition to Hello Lichfield, the Family Ticket Sponsorship programme will mean more families being invited to this year’s pantomime Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs – oh yes it will!

Cultural experiences have such a huge impact on people’s mental wellbeing that Lichfield Garrick encourage local businesses to sponsor the Family Ticket programme. Tickets through this programme are given to multiple charities who pass the tickets on to families, collectively, through this programme, the Theatre and businesses are making a difference to the lives of those in the local community at Christmas.

Local businesses looking to support families and young people in the run up to Christmas, and throughout next year, can find out more on the range of sponsorship programmes available here.

The Hello Lichfield ticket giveaway runs until midnight on 5th November. The best Hellos from local people or groups will win up to 20 tickets per group/organisation to the show of their choice. It’s that simple!
