Clever Inside Croydon reader Jenny Stabeler has an extra special Christmas treat coming her way.

Jenny and up to four friends or family members are going to the the 6pm Boxing Day performance this year’s great Croydon pantomime – The Further Adventures of Peter Pan: The Return of Captain Hook after she was the first correct entry drawn in iC’s latest terrific competition.

Jenny – and many, many other readers who entered the competition – knew that JM Barrie was the original author of the Peter Pan stories.

Jenny and her guests now get to go to the Fairfield Halls on Monday to see what our own reviewer has described as a “must-see” show.

Peter Pan, Captain Hook and Tinker Bell have flown into the Fairfield Halls this Christmas with a star-studded cast, headed up by EastEnders Ricky Champ as Captain Hook and Gemma Hunt as Tinker Bell.

Also in the cast are Crackerjack’s Mark Rhodes as Smee and Channel 5 Milkshake! presenter David Ribi as Peter Pan, all starring in a brand-new swashbuckling adventure full of fun, laughter… and crocodiles!

After defeating the evil Captain Hook and his crew of prancing pirates, life has been pretty perfect for Peter Pan. But when a stranger arrives in Neverland, he is forced to question his past and face his future. Will Peter ever grow up?

And then there are the rumours… That a certain someone survived the stormy seas and is seeking revenge! Have you heard them too? People are saying … that Hook is back!

So watch out… he might be behind you!

Jenny Stabeler’s prize of five full-priced tickets for the Fairfield Halls panto would normally cost up to £175!
