Socially distanced performances: Sunday 12th December 1pm and Friday 31st December 11.30am. Our socially distanced performances are designed to accommodate patrons who may feel trepidatious about returning to a full auditorium. You’ll find that the theatre will be approximately half-full at these performances, with seating between parties in blocks spaced 1-metre apart; there will also be timed entry into the building to reduce the flow of traffic around the venue. For more information about these performances, please click here.
Relaxed performance: Tuesday 14th December 1.30pm. The relaxed performance is adjusted to more accessible to those who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, such as those on the autistic spectrum or with sensory processing disorders. Changes include the house-lights staying up and any loud noises being muted. However the show is very much still the same panto that everyone can enjoy! Please contact the Box Office for more about the relaxed performance, or download our guide below to learn more.
