Springboard Charity has unveiled the line-up for its annual pantomime fundraiser, which will see industry professionals this year perform Dick Whittington.

Raising funds for Springboard programmes, all money raised will help to “inspire young people and nurture unemployed people of any age into the hospitality industry”.

This year’s cast comes from companies including The Ritz, Mitchells & Butlers, and HIT Training, with key performers as below:

• Liam Wood, New World Trading Company - Dick
• Katherine Price, The Caterer - Alice
• Bob Silk, Barclays and David Cowdrey, Cavalry & Guards - dames

Springboard chief executive Anne Pierce said: “The script has been written from scratch for the cast to perform Springboard’s very own version of Dick Whittington. So, expect plenty of fun as Dick travels to London to start his career as a chef - with a little help from some all-singing and all-dancing hospitality characters along the way.

“Bring your team along for a fantastic evening’s entertainment as we celebrate all that makes hospitality great. This is a night not to be missed.”

The show will take place at Leicester Square Theatre (West End, London) from 29 January - 1 February.

Tickets cost £27.50 and can be booked here: https://springboard.uk.net/events/fundraising/hospitality-industry-s-pantomime-dick-whittington.
