Our competitively priced tickets have been extremely popular with patrons this year and the take up from schools has been extremely high”. Stephen Boden, Managing Director of Imagine Teatre says “each year the reputation of the Grand Pavilion panto has been growing and to have more people than ever before seeing the show

firstly a destination for

woodworking and

trades, much of our success has been achieved through making sure we really connect with our local communities. Tis has meant reaching out to schools, clubs, charities and organisations such as the scouts, and offering training, advice or simply the use of our facilities here in the store,” says Lee. “We also host our own carving club which now has over 30 members and in December, held a Christmas makers market in store with more than a dozen local craſters enjoying the opportunity of promoting and selling their goods free of charge. “Word of mouth is still our most important way of marketing the store and we keep providing good

reasons for visitors and customers to tell others about us. We’re always looking to create a buzz of activity in store and we’d

welcome any ideas on how we can support our community through the skills, space and resources we have to offer.’
