Before the grant application began Councillor Daniel Allen declared a Pecuniary Interest in that he was Father Christmas in the Imajica Theatre Company Christmas Panto. As such, he and Councillor Amy Allen were to leave the room for the remainder of this item.
As the Vice-Chair of the Committee was not present, a temporary Chair was to be elected.
Councillor Tamsin Thomas proposed and Councillor David Levett seconded and, following a vote, it was:
RESOLVED: That Councillor Tom Plater become temporary Chair to facilitate the remainder of the item.
A verbal presentation was given by Ms. Samantha Hough on behalf of Imajica Theatre Company CIC regarding their grant application which included:
· Imajica Theatre creates interactive immersive musicals written with younger audiences in mind but enjoyed by all ages;
· As specialists in relaxed theatre, they adopt a multi-sensory approach to performances. The group use British Sign Language in their choreographies and help develop important life skills in young people which they transpose in everyday life;
· There will be 10 performances over 5 days of their brand-new Christmas Musical show ‘Rosie Reindeer and the Christmas Wish’;
· The funding provided will be used to provide 50 free tickets per performance to families on low incomes and with SEND needs.
In response to a question from Councillor Tom Plater, Ms. Hough explained that the CIC always invites the Scouts to be involved. This panto will have a tuckshop run by the scouts in order to fundraise the 25th Scouts Jubilee. Hoping that the events in future can be in cooperation with charities that pass out food .
