Jack and the Beanstalk Raises Thousands for Charity

Monday 25th January

'We are excited to confirm that the cast of the Jack and the Beanstalk Pantomime which ran throughout December at Blackfriars Theatre have raised £2328.32 for the Pilgrim Hospital's Children's Ward.  

Throughout the Pantomime season the cast members of Jack and the Beanstalk took it upon themselves to run down to the foyer after every performance with collection buckets and ask the audience to make a donation for Boston Pilgrim Hospital's Children's Ward and they have raised a whopping £2328.32 - almost double the amount that was raised last year during the season of Dick Whittington.  Silly Billy and the rest of the cast along with David Grant from Blackfriars presented the amount to the ward sister Margaret Goodley on stage at the end of the season.  

Thank you to everyone that attended the Pantomime and all those that donated, we hope you enjoyed the show and we look forward to seeing you again next year for Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood!'


Blackfriars undoubtedly plays a very important role as Boston's centre for entertainment and the arts. It is home to two very successful local amateur dramatic and operatic groups, as well as hosting a varied program of professional stage productions.
