“What’s on South West is a fantastic source of local news and events and has been a huge support to Rowcroft Hospice in recent years. The publication forms a vital part of the promotion of Rowcroft’s flagship fundraising events, in particular our ladies-only night walk, The Rowcroft Sleep Walk, 5k paint run The Colour Rush, 150ft crane abseil Over the Edge and cycle challenge, Ride for Rowcroft. We are so grateful to all at the magazine for all the hard work they put into the publication and the support they have shown Rowcroft, and so many families living with life-limiting illnesses across South Devon.”

Paignton Pantomime Productions would like to take this opportunity to thank Jamie Sinclair, Emma Pering and their designer at What’s On South West magazine and What’s On Southwest Magazine EST:1996 for all the work and support they have given since 2014.

Always helpful, efficient and courteous they have helped expand our audiences during this time and 2019 seems to be no exception with Sleeping Beauty ticket sales far in advance of previous years at this stage.

Thanks again.
