This December The Point, Eastleigh is offering the chance for a young carer to experience a Christmas to remember at a magical seasonal show.
Sparked by the generosity of audiences from previous Christmas productions, the venue will once again call on its customers to give the gift of theatre by buying a ticket (or more!) to The Snow Queen, a wintery tale of magic and mischief for families. It is being staged by award-winning, professional family theatre company tutti frutti.
In the spirit of the season of giving, The Point are inviting audiences to buy an additional ticket for a young carer to let them experience the magic of a Christmas theatre trip away from their caring duties at home.
Eastleigh Young Carers, in association with One Community, are one of The Point’s supported charities. They work together to give young people aged from eight to 18 a break from their day-to-day caring role.
The Snow Queen is an enchanting story packed with songs from renowned composer Ivan Stott and physical storytelling. Guaranteed to entertain the whole family, it runs from Saturday 15 to Sunday 30 December at The Point, Eastleigh.
The team at One Community’s Young Carers say of the scheme: “This is such a wonderful gift for our Young Carers to be able to see another great performance at The Point, an opportunity that is not always as easy to access for Young Carers and their families. A truly wonderful gift, thank you to all the supporters.”
Cabinet Member for Social Policy, Councillor Tina Campbell said: "The Young Carers are an amazing group of young people who selflessly give to their families all year round.We are thrilled that The Point’s audiences can have the chance to give something in return. Please join me in giving them a special night out at the theatre this Christmas to give them a very well earned break from their caring responsibilities."
Tickets are £11 with £9 concessions. To purchase a ticket for an Eastleigh Young Carer you can come to our Box Office in person or phone us on 023 8065 2333 .
