This newsletter let’s you know what we’re raising money for, how we are doing, and what’s to come.
Fe-fi-fo-fum, a giant of a pantomime is coming to the Wycombe Swan this festive season. Jack and the Beanstalk will be starring Blue star Simon Webbe, Britain’s Got Talent winner Ashleigh Butler and CBeebies star Chris Jarvis.
We have just 48 tickets up for grabs for the 2pm matinee performance on the last day of term, Tuesday 19th December. Pantomime goers will have permission to finish school slightly earlier to attend. The seats are all in the Circle and tickets cost just £18 each, which includes an ice cream during the interval. Whilst all the seats are fairly close, if you wish to be seated together, please purchase tickets in one transaction.

Join us for a lovely relaxed workshop with a wreath-making techniques demonstration by Michelle Judkins, followed by an opportunity to make your own luxurious Christmas wreath in a festive atmosphere! You will be able to create a wonderful masterpiece, using fresh foliage and various other festive decorative accessories. If you have anything that you would like to incorporate into your design, feel free to bring it with you. The wreath is yours to take home and enjoy.
The two workshops will take place on Tuesday 28th November in the Barn at The Two Brewers, St Peter’s Street. The first is 12.00pm-2.30pm and the second will be 7.30pm-10.00pm. Spaces are limited to 15 per workshop.
The cost is £25 per workshop. All materials are included, however, if you have them, please bring secateurs along with you and a pair of garden gloves (to protect from the prickles). Refreshments will be available to purchase from The Two Brewers.
