Audience and Beneficiaries

Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty had two performances while Aladdin and Old Mother Red Riding Boots were performed three times each. Tickets were made available for audiences of between 300 and 600 people. Specially discounted tickets were offered for members of the Armed Forces, and dress rehearsals were attended by staff of the Ministry of Works and Planning who assisted with the technical arrangements for each production.

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth attended each of the four pantomimes accompanied by other members of the Royal Family, together with audience members drawn from the Windsor Castle community and families associated with the Royal School.

The hundreds of pounds in proceeds raised from the productions were donated to the Royal Household Wool Fund, which supplied wool to make comforters for soldiers fighting at the Front.
