Starlight Children’s Foundation brought a big dose of sunshine to poorly children at the Conquest Hospital when its amazing pop-up pantomime paid a visit.

Starlight is a national charity that grants wishes for seriously and terminally-ill children and provides entertainment in hospitals and hospices across the UK. During an eight-week tour, the Starlight Summer Panto is visiting children’s wards throughout the country and stopped in Hastings on July 30.

This year’s pantomime is Robinson Crusoe and it has been produced exclusively for Starlight by The Panto Company. Caroline Stephenson, ward matron on Kipling ward, said: “Every year we look forward to Starlight’s Summer Panto and this year was no different. We know that play can significantly help to improve a child’s hospital experience.”
