GO ON , GO ON, GO ON…’Father Ted’ character Teams needed

Wanted – 2 remaining  Panto Horse Race team entries are now needed to complete our ‘Father Ted’ special team line-up for the 2018 ‘Film & TV’ character themed London Pantomime Horse Race on Sunday 16th December, at Royal Greenwich. London.

What’s involved?

The Father Ted character Panto Horse race Teams will each be invited to take part in our annual pre-race Panto-Horse ‘daft dance-off’ show called ‘Strictly Neigh Dancing’,  Each designated Panto-Horse Team will be tasked with performing a specially commissioned song, that will be connected to the ‘Father Ted’ team characters listed below.  We will shortly be announcing the  ‘Strictly’ celebrity Judging Panel,  who be there to cast a beady eye on each team’s performances.  The winning Team will bag our ‘Strictly Neigh Dancing’ 2018 champion Glitter Ball prize, plus a few other goodies.

The ‘Pre-race ceremony’ show, will itself have a slightly distinct ‘Craggy Island’ feel to it, on the day of the race. Details will be announced soon, but let’s just say, those attending the Free public event at Devonport House between 11am-1pm, may just bump into a few of the classic craggy island’ residents themselves. You have been warned!

The full amazing line up of live music acts, performers & celebrity special guests will be publicly announced during August.  It’s going to be one of the biggest events, we have ever held, in its 9-year History, so you’re all in for a very special day!

IMG_5261 (1)

The 2018 London Pantomime Horse Race will this year introduce a separate race, that will equally be as daft as the annual Panto Horse Race but a lot, lot slower.

Teams of Sloths, with a Tortoise as their race-pacemaker, will be ‘racing’ in the streets of Greenwich. from Devonport House to Royal Hill.  It’s a race & a crawl, so if you like your races just that bit slower, you are in for a super treat,

Sign up.  Places are VERY Limited. 4 teams only (2 sloths per team). For further details, email [email protected] to reserve your team place.
