Seven classic pantomimes in 70 hilarious minutes! The Olivier Award nominated festive celebration Potted Panto is back for four weeks only.

In a madcap ride through the biggest stories and best-loved characters from the wonderful world of pantomime, our dastardly double act dash from rubbing Aladdin’s lamp to roaming the golden streets of Dick Whittington's London and making sure that Cinderella gets to the Ball.

It's all unmissable fun, whether you're six or 106.

‘So silly it’s just one long joke… featuring a 3D journey to nowhere but tear-inducing laughter.’ The Guardian

‘The hordes of children fall around with delight at the mixture of sarcasm and slapstick.’ The Times

    We took our children, aged 11 and 14, who thought it was v funny. Not your traditional panto, which is great, and for older children. Would thoroughly recommend
