Springboard reveals cast for Snow White hospitality industry pantomime

Posted on 6 December, 2019

After an intense X Factor-style audition process, the full cast for the Springboard Charity’s 2020 hospitality pantomime Snow White has now been announced.

A line-up featuring famous faces from some of the UK’s top hospitality businesses, including Hyatt, Elior, Wagamama and Hilton, will be taking over London’s West End at the Leicester Square Theatre for three nights from Wednesday 29 to Friday 31 January 2020 and tickets are now available from £31.50. 

Katherine Price from The Caterer magazine is playing Snow White, Chris Penn from Steel Hotels and Bob Silk from Barclays as the pantomime dames, as well as Louise Gallant from Harri playing the evil queen Delia with Liam Wood from the New World Trading Company as her sidekick Crusty.

Meanwhile, the loyal team of dwarves will include Becky Lown from Enotria & Co, Fiona Gilbertson from CH&Co, Georgina Penny from Boutinot Wines, Martin Dibben from Benugo, Matt Wright from Cria Talent, Nicole Harvey from the Gilbert Scott and Shauna Barry from Byron.

Springboard’s hospitality pantomime is now in its fourth year and has become one of the highlights of the industry’s calendar following previous sell-out shows of Dick Whittington, Aladdin and Springderella.

All 50 of the talented and passionate cast and crew work in or are associated with hospitality, making it not only a fantastic celebration of the wonderful world of the industry, but a brilliant post-Christmas night out for hospitality teams.

All money raised will go towards supporting The Springboard Charity’s programmes, which inspire young people and nurtures unemployed people of any age into rewarding careers within the hospitality industry.

Testimonials

McMullen’s chose HIT as its sole external provider for Apprenticeships and vocational qualifications in early 2015 and since then we have found them a pleasure to work with.  Their expertise in this sector is superior and they have proven to be a professional and supportive partner who have a passion for learning and development, which matches our own organisation.

Amanda Walden – Training & Recruitment Manager, McMullen's

Encouraging our staff to improve their skills set and supporting them through apprenticeships and training programmes underlines our commitment to help them further develop their own careers. Offering the Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship also gives the Brend Group a point of difference which I’m convinced will help attract new members of staff in the future.

Andrew Mosedale - Group HR Manager, Brend Hotels

Our partnership with HIT has certainly made recruitment much easier in a very difficult labour market and gives us a point of difference in an increasingly competitive environment.  Kew Green has also benefited enormously from well trained, skilled and competent staff who contribute significantly to the ever improving and high levels of customer experience that our guests expect and deserve.

Andrew Tregenza - HR Business Partner, Kew Green Hotels

Apprenticeships allow us to give people a great opportunity to develop a career with us and learn a skill or trade that will accompany them throughout their career and life. We see progression to the Level 4 qualification as key to our strategy of providing development at all stages of an employee’s career with Harrison.

Alex Taylor - Training Manager, Harrison Catering Services

There is a shortage of skilled chefs within in our industry at present and any organisation that truly believes in the value of training and development of bright future stars will enable themselves to be in a strong position for the years ahead. Investing in smart training and development is at the heart of what we do within WSH, so it has been refreshing to work alongside HIT within our Baxterstorey Chef Academy.
