Members of the UK’s Armed Forces have been given a Christmas gift for their families – they’re all off to the panto thanks to Tickets For Troops and the Ambassador Theatre Group.
The theatre group, which supports the military charity, has offered troops tickets up and down the country including Stoke-On-Trent, Torquay, Glasgow, Bristol, Woking and London.
They will be able to take their loved ones to productions including Cinderella, Aladdin and Sleeping Beauty, enabling families to spend time together having a laugh.
A Tickets for Troops spokesperson said: “ATG have been generously supporting our soldiers, sailors, airmen and women for the last seven years. We are extremely grateful to them.”
Group Chief Executive Officer at The Ambassador Theatre Group, Mark Cornell said: “Tickets for Troops is a worthy charity and I’m delighted at the opportunity for members of the Armed Forces and their families to enjoy a magical night out at one of our pantomimes around the UK this Christmas.”
Tickets for Troops was set up in 2009 to provide free tickets to the Armed Forces for sports, music, theatre, cultural and entertainment events across the UK.
Organisations who would like to get involved with the charity and donate free tickets to benefit our servicemen and women can get in contact with Tickets for Troops by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and you can found out more details on the website www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk
