A genuine opportunity for children to develop their singing, dancing and acting skills in fully staged performances!


Youngsters in Mansfield & Nottingham are being urged to take to the stage with local theatre company – New Youth Theatre.

The New Youth Theatre concept is simple.  Children between the ages of 3-17 years are taught how to develop and improve their performing arts skills whilst rehearsing for a fully staged musical each term.  There are three shows a year and the shows are performed at local theatres.  This unique approach to musical theatre brings children of all ages together to enjoy learning new skills, have fun and be onstage!

New Youth Theatre are looking for enthusiastic children interested in taking part in “Fame The Musical”  or “Seussical The Musical Jnr” with rehearsals starting in January 2013.  Taster sessions for both shows are being held in December.  To book a place at the taster call Neil or Vicky on 01623 406284 or visit www.newyouththeatre.co.uk/mansfield or www.newyouththeatre.co.uk/nottingham

Make this Christmas a truly memorable one by sending a child you know a magical Letter from Santa. For a suggested donation of £5 to the NSPCC, your child will receive a fun, colourful and personalised letter from the man himself – the perfect gift.


Christmas is a busy time of year for Santa, but he always makes time to write to the children on his good list – last year 18,380 letters were delivered to children and families in the East Midlands.


There are five magical styles of NSPCC Letter from Santa for children of all ages, making them the ideal gift for families with more than one child as each child can receive a truly unique letter. Santa can even write a special letter to celebrate Baby’s First Christmas – a keepsake to treasure for years to come.


Each letter is uniquely personalised with the child’s name, age, address, gender and best friend’s name, and there’s also the chance to include a final ‘P.S.’ thought from Santa when you order online. The letters are beautifully illustrated and arrive via reindeer mail to make the experience truly unforgettable. Children will be amazed that Santa knows them so well!


By sending a Letter from Santa, supported by Heart FM, you can make a child’s Christmas and help the NSPCC to protect children all year round through its projects and services including ChildLine – the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people in distress or danger. Every £5 raised by Letter from Santa will help ChildLine be there whenever a child seeks help either online or by phone. And every £25 raised will enable a trained practitioner to deliver one hour of support through the NSPCC’s helpline for adults who are concerned about a child.


The reindeer mailroom will be open from 1 October until 17 December 2012, and all those who request a Letter from Santa this year will be entered into a free prize draw to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Lapland for a family of four.


From 1 October, you’ll be able to find us online at www.nspcc.org.uk/santa or alternatively you can call 0845 839 9304 to place your order.
