There was a very special surprise at Temple Street on Friday, when the cast of The Helix Pantomime, Robin Hood arrived in character to spread some Christmas cheer this festive season among the young patients, families and staff.
This year, The Helix has teamed up with Temple Street Children’s University Hospital as its charity partner and we are so grateful to them. On Thursday, 13th of December, The Helix is arranging a designated charity show in aid of Temple Street where ALL proceeds on the night will go directly to the hospital. To date The Helix and TheatreworX have raised €23,000.00 for Temple Street from designated charity shows throughout their two year partnership.
Speaking on the partnership, Claire Tighe, CEO of TheatreWorX Productions said ‘We are delighted to be teaming up with Temple Street again this year, we’re hoping that we’ll have a full house on December 13th and raise much needed funds for this worthy cause’.
Angela McNulty, Special Events & Community Manager says, “We know that Christmas has truly started in Temple Street when our wonderful friends from the Helix Panto come to visit our little patients. Their charity show in support of Temple Street has become such a wonderful seasonal tradition and the funds it raises is helping to make little lives better every day. We would like to thank the team in The Helix and the TheatreWorx cast and crew for their incredible support and on behalf of our doctors, nurses, staff and families we wish them all a very merry Christmas!”
With all the wit, magic and fun, The Helix Panto, Robin Hood will captivate audiences of all ages with a magical story, lively music, song and dance, eye-catching sets and of course lots of laughs for all the family to enjoy.
Tickets for the charity show are priced at a special price of €20.00 per seat (booking fees apply) and are on sale now from www.thehelix.ie and at The Helix Box Office on 01 700 7000.
A special thanks to Robin and Marian themselves, who were a huge hit in our wards as you can see below!
