Want to enjoy an all-star Peter Pan audio play and support GOSH?

It’s cold outside, it’s been (frankly) an awful year, and to top it all off we can’t go to the panto (oh no we can’t!).

Peter Pan for GOSH

So we at MNHQ are really happy to support a brand-new audio production of Peter Pan, which will go some way towards filling the rather sad pantomime-shaped gap, and raise funds for a vital charity: the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. As lots of you will know, J M Barrie gifted the royalties for Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street in perpetuity, and in more normal years panto productions are a big fundraiser for the hospital.

The adaptation features a festive blowout of amazing acting talent, including the actual Queen Olivia Colman, Sharon D Clarke, Joanna Riding, Bertie Carvel, Kenneth Branagh, Jane Horrocks, Jason Flemyng, Clive Rowe, and many more.

Members of the GOSH Young People’s Forum, including patients currently undergoing treatment and ex-patients, perform alongside the professional cast. Just in case you weren’t feeling emotional enough already…

The production was recorded over Zoom (of course) and has been mixed and mastered together with a fantastic score to provide escapism for the whole family.

The audio play will be available to stream from Sunday 20 December. The full production will be available for £1.99 – 100% of this will go directly to GOSH. Further donations will be greatly appreciated.
