Following the hugely successful Standing Tall community pantomime project, Wolverhampton Grand Theatre have once again collaborated with Heath House Studios to work on this year’s community pantomime project, Paving the Way.
The project began back in January, since then the Grand Theatre and Heath House Studios have delivered free workshops to over twenty five groups in the local community including Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline, Breast Cancer Support Group Wolverhampton and the Refugee & Migrant Centre Wolverhampton which resulted in us engaging with over five hundred people. During the workshops the participants embroidered, sewed, glued and weaved to create a Gothic Tower Bridge, London and a colourful market stall in Marrakech, Morocco, in order to complement Wolverhampton Grand Theatre’s 2019/2020 pantomime, DICK WHITTINGTON.
The project would not have been possible without grant support from local Trusts and Charitable Foundations as well as generous donations made by the public to our Creative Learning Fund. Please visit grandtheatre.co.uk/support for information on ways to donate to future projects and to see the impact your support makes.

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre and Heath House Studios would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped and supported this amazing project.
