IT’S BEHIND YOU! What is? Get with the Program’s FREE Christmas Coding Pantomime!

Yes, it’s that time of year again, but not as we know it!

Sadly COVID-19 has mostly put a stop to Live Pantomimes in schools, but we feel the children shouldn’t miss out!

As you may know, Get with the Program has been working in collaboration with the Winchester Science Centre to bring a fully streamed, contact free, coding pantomime right to homes and classrooms, which has been crafted by our fabulous director, Shona Charlton.

Goldilocks is in a spot of bother and Al the Robot is there to help, right on cue!

Can they work together to save the Three Bears’ Christmas breakfast?

Combining computing and interactive theatre, this 20 minute show will not only get the children into the Christmas spirit, “Oh yes it will”, they’ll be learning coding concepts, programming and linking to the curriculum too. What better way to learn than to have fun at the same time!

Now the sign up is open, anyone across the country can register with Winchester Science Centre to receive a free link to view the panto using this Google sign up form. You will be asked to enter your school or organisation – please enter your place of work if appropriate, or alternatively if you prefer, enter your organisation as ‘Get with the Program’.

We are delighted that the government funded STEM Learning (who support the Winchester Science Centre’s STEM Learning Hub, STEM NOW), are also sharing this with their other hubs nationally!

The show will be available to view from 8th December at a time to suit you (and your school, children, grandchildren friends or family!)

100 schools signed up on the first day of release – so please feel free to share this post to any teachers and schools you support or have contacts with who would also enjoy our Christmas pantomime!

Should you prefer to receive a Word version of the form please email Winchester Science Centre at
