A Cinderella story is a sure fire way to warm our hearts and we were thrilled to be asked to judge the winning design for a pair of shoes for Cinderella, who will be starring in this year’s Pantomime at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, starting on 12th December. In conjunction with Wolverhampton Art Gallery, the theatre are calling for budding designers to come up with a dazzling original design which will then be made into a real pair of shoes (by us!) for Cinderella to really wear to the ball (and the entire pantomime run!).
Shortlisted children will then take part in some fun workshop sessions at the Art Gallery in November and we’ll be there to help them design a shoe fit for a Cinderella princess. To be honest we’re just looking forward to playing with sequins, glue and glitter!
It’s so exciting we even made the front page picture of last weekend’s Express and Star (see above), and we’re sure they’ll be keeping you updated on the winner. Watch this space for details of the winner and a sneak preview of the fabulous shoes!
