It's a Lions Pantomime!

And we don't mean Club Meetings. (Oh yes you do!) Oh no we don't!

2015 is the 28th year that Scunthorpe Lions Club booked the whole of the Plowright Theatre for one night. All the tickets are then distributed free to those deserving children who otherwise would never attend such a magical event.

With a capacity of 354, it means over 9900 children (and carers / parents / guardians where applicable) have seen a Pantomime who otherwise would not have had a chance.

Local business contribute to completing the night by providing Drinks, Crisps and Sweets to munch through whilst watching the performance. 


Here we see Past President Lion Mike Kitchen with the year 2000 audience.

Here we see the line up of the lions club members and Santa ready to distribute the refreshments before the start of the 2009 pantomime. From left to right Lions Jim Harding, Colin Applewhite, Phil Johns, Brian Borrill, John Rawlinson, Paul Holloway, Derek Hall, John Crellin and of course Santa.
