7 days to go until…#BIGIMAGINATIONSFEST

So here we are, seven days and counting!

The Big Imaginations Festival is back for 2017 and will be showcasing the best in children and family theatre from the 19 October – 5 November at 26 venues across the North West.

The countdown continues! With eight days to go until the start of of #BigImaginationsFest, we speak to Fay Lamb, Chief Executive of The Citadel Arts Centre in St Helen’s, who are trialling Pay What You Decide for their performance of Catapluf’s Musical Journey

What can families expect when they come to the Citadel for the Big Imaginations Festival?

A feast for big imaginations – world class nationally and internationally renowned theatre for families and children, free craft activities, a warm welcome and a potentially life changing experience!

Why is being part of the Big Imaginations consortium & Festival so important to the arts offer for families in St Helens?

Without Big Imaginations The Citadel would not be able to provide the fantastic year round children and families theatre offer.

What are you looking forward to the most about the festival?

‘Gigging’ with the kids in The Citadel auditorium for Catapluf’s Musical Journey

You are asking customers to pay what they decide their experience is worth for Catapluf’s Musical Journey, how will this work for those who come to see the show?

Families can reserve tickets to come and see the show at no cost. After the show they will be asked to pay what they decide the experience was worth to them. Envelopes will be placed on seats for cash payments or the box office will be open for card transactions. (audiences are reminded that ticket prices would normally be £5 for children and £7 for adults)

What led you to trial Pay What You Decide for a family show?

Pay what you decide is a great way to de-risk a new experience for families. The Citadel fundamentally believes in the transformational impact of the arts and ‘pay what you decide’ enables families to make a value decision about what the arts experience was worth to them.
