Festive Fun!

Ho Ho Ho! Christmas is only 14 days away!

my pimped pic!

Thanks to Andrew Brown and Ollie Bray for blogging the above Idea!

With the onset of the festive period I have offered to supervise the back stage activities of our School Christmas Pantomime. Having had surgery on my foot last year, I was unable to get involved. Although I have helped out in previous school productions out with Knox, This is my first time actually supervising backstage. I know that last year’s pantomime was a huge success so we have a lot to live up to. We decided not to go for any particular theme this year, but a kind of 'Mish Mash’ of a number of famous pantomimes with an added ‘X-Factor’ thread running through (I won’t say more as it is meant to be a secret!). The pupils have written the script and are now manically rehearsing for the last day production. I have got the ball rolling with scenery and costumes. The pupils have been great in supplying a lot of the materials themselves. So far, I am in communication with Tesco who are more than happy to send some old yet robust cardboard packaging my way, I have a mound of old retro clothes and a pile of outrageous makeup, but I am looking for any advise or suggestions as to where to search for more cheap, or even better free, resources.

Any ideas?
