Winners: Glass Slipper Hunt

The overall winner was 7-year old Caitlyn who won a family ticket to the panto on Sunday 17th December accompanied by a pre-show meal as well as a ride to the panto in her very own chauffeur driven limo!

For the last 4 weekends Barrow BID has been running an exciting treasure hunt around the town centre. Children of all ages have taken part in the hunt to find Cinderella’s Glass Slipper by solving the clues to spell out where Cinderella had carelessly mislaid it.

The final day for entrants was last Sunday and even Cinderella herself along with her Ugly Sisters came to join in the fun and helped to pick out 3 winners who each won some fantastic prizes.

In 3rd Place was Bobbie-Mae, aged 5, who won a family ticket to attend the Cinderella Panto at The Forum on Sunday 17th December;

In 2nd Place was Elyse, aged 11 who won a family ticket to the panto on Sunday 17th December and interval drinks;

But the overall winner was 7-year old Caitlyn. She won a family ticket to the panto on Sunday 17th December accompanied by a pre-show meal as well as a ride to the panto in her very own chauffeur driven limo!

All entrants who completed the quiz received a certificate for taking part as well as a small gift plus the opportunity to have a picture taken with Cinderella.

Barrow BID Manager, Phil Collier, said: “It is great to see so many families engaging with businesses in the town centre as this is a big part of the BID’s objective. During 2018 there will be more events aimed at different age groups and sectors… but more of that next year. In the meantime, thanks to everyone that took part in this event and to Ultimate Events for organising it on behalf of the BID. I would also like to say a huge thank you to The Forum for donating these amazing prizes and to all the shops and venues that supported us by taking part.

“And, of course, congratulations to the three winners. I hope that they all had a fabulous time at the panto on Sunday and that Caitlyn and her family enjoyed the ride in their own personal limousine.”

The BID has a final pre-Christmas event lined up for Thursday 21st December where more fantastic prizes can be won. Elf on a Shelf is a fun filled event where children get a list of things that Santa needs to be ready for Christmas Day. The elves are hiding in 10 local shops and you need to find where they all are and the name of the elf that is helping Santa.

Entry forms can be picked up from The Entertainer on Dalton Road between 11am & 1pm and 1st, 2nd and 3rdplace winners will be announced in-store at 2pm and will win a vast array of prizes donated by The Entertainer.

Thank you to everyone who helped Cinderella find her lost Glass Slipper, and a huge congratulations to our winners! Head to The Forum theatre Barrow to find out what happened next for Cinderella at this year's Panto is running from 13th – 30th December.
