The Interior Designers’ Pantomime
LET THE DAMES BEGIN!
Come and join the fun at what will be one of the most talked about charity events of the year. The much-anticipated Interior Designers’ Pantomime, rehershed at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, will be staging ‘Jack and the Blingstalk’ from Sunday 3 to Thursday 7 November at the Harold Pinter Theatre in the heart of London’s West End. An eye dazzling, rip-roaring, jaw-dropping production of the legendary fairytale, it will be told and created by the biggest names in interior design.
The design cognoscenti treading the boards will include Tim Gosling, Joanna Wood and Hill House Interiors, so expect a cast of luminaries. Craig Revel Horwood will choreograph the ‘Dame Trott and the King’ number, while the voice of the Giant will be created by impressionist Alistair McGowan. Leading fashion houses including Vivienne Westwood, Bruce Oldfield, Jasper Conran, Thomas Starzewski, Allegra Hicks and John Pearse will create the exuberant costumes. Specially designed for the show, they will be made from beautiful furnishing fabrics donated by the industry. The detailed, handcrafted pieces are considered works of art in their own right.
Now in its sixth year, the pantomime grows in scale and ambition, bringing the design community together to raise money for charity. This year, it is all in aid of Screw Cancer, the charity set up by William Yeoward, a huge supporter of the show, who sadly passed away in June. Honouring William’s remarkable legacy, the aim is to develop an app that helps cancer sufferers to simply navigate the overwhelming amount of contacts, appointments and information important in their treatment journey. There will be an exclusive black tie gala performance on 6 November. Tickets for the five-night run of magic and laughter can be booked in advance.
