Beauty and The Beast at The Globe, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, 2023

Blackpool Pleasure Beach has launched a competition to design a costume for a pantomime dame.

The chosen design will be developed by an illustrator at Stageworks Worldwide Productions, producer of this year’s Beauty and The Beast at The Globe, and may be used to inspire costumes for the company’s 2024 pantomime.

The winner will be invited to a backstage tour of the pantomime to meet the cast, which includes TV personality Charlotte Dawson and Betty Legs Diamond.

Judges Amanda Thompson OBE, CEO of Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Stageworks, and Simon Green, aka Betty Legs Diamond, will select their top three costume designs which will then be put to public vote to crown the winner. The winner and two runners-up will receive tickets for this year's show.

Entrants can download an entry form at the Blackpool Pleasure Beach web site and must submit their designs to [email protected] by Sunday 3 December 2023.
