Victoria Theatre Bans Single Use Plastic Toys During Pantomime!
Victoria Theatre is doing its bit to help the environment by banning single use plastic toys during pantomime performances.
You won’t be able to buy disposable plastic flashing toys while watching Beauty and the Beast when the fun begins on December 14 – or bring them in with you.
Instead, higher quality toys such as hand puppets, finger puppets and pencils with fun toppers will be available to buy.
Tim Fagan, The Victoria Theatre Theatres Manager, said: “Plastic pollution is a global issue and whilst this is a small step, we hope that this is just one step closer to encouraging our organisation and guests to think more about the use of single use plastic. We are also looking at other environmental initiatives and are trialling recycling solutions in the venue in the coming months.”
Beauty and the Beast, Victoria Theatre, Saturday, December 14 – Sunday, January 5. Tickets cost £16 and are available online or www.victoriatheatre.co.uk, or by calling the Box Office on 01422 351158.
