A theatre will be giving winners of the Stars of Norfolk and Waveney 2021 awards free tickets.

For our 2021 awards, Norwich Theatre Royal is offering four pantomime tickets for each of the winners.

The total of 48 tickets will be in the hands of the heroines and heroes of our communities, nominated by you and selected by our judging panel.

Nominations are now open for the awards, which celebrate those going above and beyond in their communities.

The Hopkins Homes-sponsored awards enter their ninth year in 2021, with a ceremony set to be held at Norwich Cathedral in December.

Stephen Crocker, chief executive and creative director of Norwich Theatre, said: “We are delighted to be donating pantomime tickets to the winners of the Stars of Norfolk. The work of these everyday heroes in Norfolk and Waveney often goes unnoticed, but they are part of what makes our county so special.

"We hope they enjoy a festive reward as they join us for Dick Whittington and his Cat, with its stellar cast, dazzling dance routines, side-splitting comedy, and fantastic live music.

“We are incredibly excited to be able to bring back our large-scale ‘all-singing, all dancing’ pantomime at Theatre Royal this year. It’s been an absolute joy to be working with our very own creative team here at Norwich Theatre and to bring together such an amazing cast made up of local favourites and nationally and internationally renowned talent for this year’s pantomime.”
