A Kettering theatre group is raising money for two good causes during its Christmas production of Peter Pan.

C&D Productions is performing the popular show at Southfield School for Girls on Friday and Saturday, December 11 and 12.

All profits from ticket sales are to be split between Kettering General Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

C&D say the production features all the familiar characters from Peter Pan including the Lost Boys, pirates, mermaids and of course Captain Hook.

Janet Ford, lead matron at Kettering Hospital’s Neonatal Unit, said: “Ultimately donations to the Neonatal Unit help to enhance and improve the experience for our parents and their babies.

“As you can imagine some of our babies are with us for several weeks and anything that we can do to improve their time with us is paramount.”

Chris Lynch, from C&D, said: “I’m incredibly proud that our theatre group is able to help raise funds for two great causes, especially as I spent weeks there myself when I was born.”

“The evening is suitable for children of all ages and any funds raised from refreshments/programmes will be going to a local food bank in time for Christmas.”

Tickets for the show can be purchased online at or in person from Not Just Words, in The Yards off Market Street.

Tickets are £9 for adults and £7 for concessions, with doors opening at 7.10pm for a 7.30pm start.

Parking is available at Southfields School.
