Since 2018, Molly Limpet's has been a proud sponsor of the Great British Panto Awards, currently held each year in London.
In 2018 and 2019 Molly Limpet's sponsored the category of Best Ugly Sisters (see winners' videos below), as well as dressing the entertainment acts seen during the course of the show, including the dancers of Mountview Academy, who have opened the prestigious awards show since 2018 at London's New Wimbledon Theatre.
The Awards have raised awareness of Molly Limpet's involvement with pantomime, both as costume suppliers, and also supporters of the art of pantomime. Now a multi-million-pound industry, pantomime is a valuable and significant part of the economy of many UK theatres, with some of our nation's finest actors, and London's West End hosting their star-studded, largest-in-the-world, no-expense-spared, pantomime at the London Palladiumeach Christmas.
2020 sees Molly Limpet's sponsor the Best Panto Dame category. We are also extra proud as our very own Scott McKenzie is nominated as designer for the first time in the Best Costume category.
The event is invite-only, but is streamed live on Facebook on the night. Make sure you tune in to see the show, hosted by the one-and-only Christopher Biggins, from London's Shaw Theatre on April 26th.
