Panto stars take on role of firefighters during Arnold Fire Station visit

Pantomime stars currently treading the boards in Nottingham halted rehearsals this week to spend the morning with firefighters at Arnold Fire Station.

The visit was organised over Christmas after the stars of Jack and the Beanstalk at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal joined fire officers from the station on a visit to Nottingham’s Children’s Hospital to pass on gifts donated to the children and spread some festive cheer.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “The team has been doing the visit for around seven or eight years now and they organise for big local firms, such as Ikea, to donate gifts which they then pass on to the children – who absolutely love it.

“They then spend some time with the kids, have a chat with them etc, and are also joined by the Theatre Royal Panto stars and, this year, players from Notts County.

“Following on from the trip to the hospital, the crew invited the panto stars to have a look round the station as a sort of thank you.”
