Oh yes they did! Beauty and the Beast panto stars surprise patients with an early Christmas visit to North Mid children’s ward

Dozens of children at North Middlesex University Hospital were left star struck yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 28 November) as members of Millfield Theatre’s Beauty and the Beast cast paid a visit to the hospital’s Rainbow ward in the run up to Christmas.

Actors Lottie-Daisy Francis, Adam Braidley and Philip Lee arrived at the hospital dressed respectively as their panto alter egos Beauty, Gaston and the Professor to meet with some of our junior inpatients and bring a large dose of festive cheer to the ward’s children, families and staff.

In between taking photos, the cast spent time talking to families and asking youngsters on the ward about their stay. During their visit, the trio also recorded a special, heartfelt video message for one patient in particular who unfortunately missed them as she was attending a scan appointment.

Tanya O’Driscoll, matron of North Mid’s Rainbow ward, said: “We’re so grateful to Millfield Theatre – yesterday’s visit by their panto stars was an absolute treat for our children.  All of our patients - some of whom are being treated at North Mid for long standing illnesses – enjoyed meeting Beauty and her friends, and it was really lovely to see their bright, bold costumes.

“We hope to welcome more friends like Millfield to our paediatric wards over the coming weeks. There’s never a good time to be unwell, but Christmas can often feel like the worst time for our young patients and their families.  Our nurses and play leaders have lots of fun, exciting events and activities planned for patients over the festive period – all with the aim to entertain whilst in recovery and take their minds off their treatment.”

Beauty and the Beast opens for its first show today and will run throughout the festive season until Sunday 6 January 2019.  To see Beauty, Gaston and the rest of the Beauty and the Beast cast on stage, book your tickets at www.millfieldtheatre.co.uk.
