Young People And Adults With Learning Disabilities Treated To Pantomime Performance Thanks To Irwin Mitchell
Law Firm’s Court of Protection Team Take Guests To Birmingham Hippodrome’s Peter Pan
Young people and adults affected by a range of learning disabilities were treated to a very special performance of Birmingham Hippodrome’s pantomime Peter Pan, thanks to specialist lawyers based in the city.
The group were treated to a relaxed performance of the show on 23 January, meaning that attendees were able to sing along, dance and get out of their seats as the actors performed the special version of JM Barrie’s famous story onstage.
TV personality Darren Day and actress Meera Syal led the cast in the show, alongside the likes of Union J’s Jaymi Hensley and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Sascha Williams.
The event was arranged by the Court of Protection team based at Birmingham office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell and organised to give clients and their families an opportunity to see the show and enjoy a festive treat.
The experts specialise in all matters relating to the Court of Protection and support people who are responsible for managing the affairs of those incapable of doing it themselves.
“Relaxed performances are a great opportunity to ensure that people of all ages and abilities are able to see a range of shows in a comfortable environment.
“It has become a bit of a tradition for us to arrange for some clients to head to the pantomime and we hope that everyone who came along this year enjoyed themselves.
“Many of those we work with face a great number of challenges in their lives, so we hope that arranging this performance helps them to get a much-needed break from their routines and also gives them a chance to relax too.” Joanna Grewer - Partner
