Chadwick Lawrence Get Into the Panto Spirit

Staff at Yorkshire law firm Chadwick Lawrence have entered into the spirit of the season by holding a mock trial of the rats, the infamous villains from pantomime Dick Whittington.

A seasonal favourite, Dick Whittington is playing this Christmas at Theatre Royal Wakefield, where Chadwick Lawrence is a Gold Sponsor.

The ‘trial’, held in Wakefield Town Hall’s magnificent Old Court Room, was set up ahead of the evening showing tonight attended by 50 staff from Chadwick Lawrence, which has offices in Wakefield, Huddersfield, Leeds and Halifax. 

Litigation Partner at the firm, Tim Welton, said:

“We are very proud to support a number of different institutions across Yorkshire, covering everything from charity, to sport and the arts. Our long standing relationship with Theatre Royal Wakefield is one we are particularly proud of.

“It enables us to bring the staff out of the office and have a bit of fun. That togetherness is always important but perhaps even more so at this time of year.”

Jon Ingham, Head of Fundraising and Partnerships said:

“It was a pleasure to judge our young pantomime cast members Millie Close, Isla Bowles, Izabel Dalton and Charlotte Carr, who were of course found guilty of bringing festive frivolity to tens of thousands of people this Christmas.

“Chadwick Lawrence’s corporate membership provides invaluable support throughout the year, allowing the theatre to discover and develop such talented young performers.”

Millie, Isla, Izabel, Charlotte and the rest of the cast appear in Dick Whittington at Theatre Royal Wakefield until Sunday 3 January, 2016.
