With social distancing restrictions, many schools are planning on cancelling their annual Christmas festivities. But they don’t need to! 

Rocketfund & the people behind 'Panto Online' have teamed up to provide a place for schools to fundraise for their very own Christmas panto, play or nativity and sell tickets online. 

Oh no you haven't! Oh yes we have!

Legendary Blue Peter presenter and long time panto star, Peter Duncan is putting on his very own 'Panto Online' and we want to inspire schools to do the same.
