ROBIN HOOD PERFORMANCE...

The recent production of the pantomime “Robin Hood” by the Saints and Sinners was a fun-packed show enjoyed by all four audiences. The “men in tights” were a joy to behold and were pretty good at the can-can! Even the characters’ names in the programme caused a titter, particularly the five Knights.  The jokes were funny, the diction was excellent and the singing and dancing by the children was superb. Well done to them all!  Thanks must go to Chris Giles for writing such a marvellous script and to the directors, the stage manager and everyone involved in producing a super show and thereby raising funds for a very worthy local cause, Hull4Heroes.

HESSLE PANTO RAISES MONEY FOR LOCAL CHARITY

Members of the Saints and Sinners group based in Hessle have just made a cheque presentation of £365 to the Freedom Road Creative Arts charity based in Hull. The monies were raised from their pantomime production of Dick Whittington which they put on at All Saints’ Church Hall in early February.
The show’s Director Chris Giles said “Every time Saints and Sinners put on one of our panto or variety shows we try and raise monies for a nominated charity and over the years we have raised considerable sums for various local and national organisations. This year our production of “Dick Whittington” raised funds for Freedom Road Creative Arts which was launched in July 2008 to offer children and young people in the Hull area workshops in Drama, Dance, Song-writing and Singing in order to make a positive difference to their lives through the creative and performing arts.”
Looking ahead Saints and Sinners production for 2018 will be “Jack and the Beanstalk” and work will begin on the script in a couple of month’s time. 
Team effort by the Saints and Sinners Drama Group raises £360 for the funds of Freedom Road Creative Arts which was launched in July 2008 to offer children and young people in the Hull area workshops in Drama, Dance, Songwriting and Singing in order to make a positive difference to their lives  through the creative and performing arts.

The Group’s shows and pantomimes have raised thousands of pounds for charities over the years and the forthcoming production of “Beauty and The Beast” is to raise funds for HERIB (Hull and East Riding Institute for the Blind) a registered charity which aims to improve and enrich the quality of life for local people with sight loss.

The Group began around 1982, when regulars at Hessle's Eight Bells (now the Norland) on First Lane put on a series of 'Old Time Music' shows along with members of the local operatic society to raise money for All Saints' Church in Hessle. Pantomimes have included Aladdin (1984) Cinderella (1986), and Dick Whittington (1996) The late 80’s and early 90’s also saw Music Hall and Cabaret Shows, and plays being performed. Following a period of about 10 years when the group was dormant it was resurrected in 2006 and January 2007 saw the tremendous success of its production of “Cinderella” followed in 2008 by the equally successful Variety Show “There’s Now’t Good On Telly So……” and 2009’s Pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk played to full houses Throughout its history the group has been closely associated with All Saints’ Church Hessle and has raised considerable sums of money for various charities including the BBC’s Children In Need, Beverley and District MENCAP , and the Hull Homeless and Rootless Project. In 2010 the group’s “Time Machine” variety show raised £500 for Humber Rescue and the 2011 production of Aladdin raised £800 for the local Echoes Foundation.
