Pantomime Sponsors 2017

East Ayrshire Leisure, The Palace Theatre and Imagine Theatre and are delighted to welcome returning sponsors Wilko, West FM and Stewart Travel for this year’s pantomime – Dick Whitington. We're also happy to welcome new sponsors WG13 this year.


Wilko started life as a family-run business back in 1930 when JK Wilkinson opened his first store in Leicester and they haven’t stopped growing since. Today, Wilko’s is still family run, but now have 370 stores across the UK. The Kilmarnock branch of Wilko’s have been a panto sponsor for a few years now and we are delighted to welcome them back this year.
