Panto goers will be able to enjoy a sweet treat this year in Beccles thanks to a local sponsor.

Pantomime will return to the town’s Public Hall this Christmas with family favourite Snow White after it was forced to be postponed last year due to the pandemic.

For the third time the production will be sponsored by a leading independent shop.

Vanessa and Paul Kisby, owners of Sweeties, the traditional sweet shop in New Market, are about to celebrate one year of their newly designed shop in the town and have chosen to mark it by supporting the seasonal spectacular once again.

The sweet shop will be selling special Snow White sweet boxes, with each delectable piece of confectionary specially chosen for the way it relates to the show.

“We absolutely love the pantomime and it has become a Christmas tradition in Beccles,” said Mr Kisby.

“Everyone loves sweets and everyone loves a pantomime - the two go together perfectly.

"We are looking forward to getting into the spirit of the occasion and we hope to have a pantomime themed window during the festive period.”
