Adopt a Fairy!

Do you have someone fairy-mad in your family? Do you want to treat them to an enchanting experience and support your local amateur dramatic group into the bargain?

Well, loudly let the trumpets bray… because we are offering a handful of magical opportunities for our audience members to adopt one of our Iolanthe fairies!

For just £10, your fairy fan will get:

  • A personalised certificate of adoption
  • A letter from their adopted fairy
  • A free copy of our Iolanthe programme
  • A dress rehearsal photo of their adopted fairy
  • A meeting with their adopted fairy and the fairy queen in our on-stage fairyland during the interval of whichever performance they attend
To take advantage of this offer, simply email Vikki Rehm at with the name of your chosen fairy (see their names below) and choice of performance. We will then send you payment details and confirm the sponsor information for the adoption pack, which will be delivered on the night (or afternoon) by our front of house stewards.

Fairies up for adoption:

Rosie Cobweb Elderberry

Celia Nutmeg Flutter-Wings

Crystal Oakapple Pincushion

Scarlett Bracken Will-O’-Wisp

Hortensia Dahlia Nimbus

If you go down to the woods today...

Hope you like the results of our Iolanthe photoshoot! Several members visited the woodland near the Queen Mother Theatre last week and had some magical fairy fun. Many thanks to member (and Peer) Al Saunders for producing such fantastic shots for us.

The show will look fantastic with original fairy costumes put together by our talented Wardrobe Mistress, Manda Fraser, all in autumnal colours and decked with leaves and flowers. We fairies can't wait to wear them. And wait until you see the wings! And the men will be wearing the best set of Peers costumes available - now owned by PBGS and available for hire - so the Entry of the Peers will be spectacular.

Iolanthe runs from the 9th-12th October with a matinee performance on the Saturday and tickets are already selling, so don't delay too long in booking your preferred seats. Our G&S performances are very popular and some nights will sell out.
You can order your tickets by clicking on the button above for full online booking via the Queen Mother Theatre Box Office. For booking queries tel: 01462 455166.
