"Oh no there isn't. Oh yes there is!" - So Many Christmas Pantos To See This December!

Updated: Nov 17, 2020



Hoorah for the joy of Christmas Pantomime is still coming this December! The Panto is a must-do tradition at Christmas time and we almost narrowly missed out. But fear not, as most shows are still going ahead and there is plenty of choice across the UK. The endless jokes and punchlines will really bring some fun and laughter to the end of what has been a very bleak year. We are spoilt for choice with what to see, Alladin is a popular show for 2020 or perhaps you will head to something more alternative like Nurse Nellie Saves Panto. Our top pics obviously include one of the fantastic drive-in experiences, we love The Parking Lot Panto which is part of the Winter Festival, taking place in many UK destinations, or we might head to Brighton Open Air Theatre for one of their remarkably fun shows!


Check out our huge list of shows for you to book this Christmas, it's behind you! (Only kidding it's below, keep scrolling!)
