In celebration of this year’s Spectacular Pantomime Beauty & The Beast, The Royal Spa Centre have been running a competiton for children to get creative and design their own Beauty or Beast costume!

The art competition has attracted many entries with people taking part across Warwickshire and beyond making the voting process extremely difficult.

The Winners designs will now be brought to life by local production art students from Warwickshire college and will be showcased at this year’s Leamington Lights switch on taking place on 20th November at 4.50pm. Winners will be wearing their winning designs and will appear on stage with the cast of the Beauty & The Beast pantomime. They will also receive a family ticket to this year’s panto and 5 runners up will also receive tickets.

Nuala Chiba, aged 10 from Harbury wowed the judges with her scary beast creation and Alizee Valero, aged 9 won everyone over with her colourful representation of Beauty.

Marketing Officer Jo Lewis says “Our panto art competition has become extremely popular over the years. It takes place every half term ahead of our panto to get everyone in the Christmas spirit and to explore their creative side. We are so excited to be collaborating with Arts Students from Warwickshire and to be engaging the community in such a fun activity”
