“Oh, yes it is!” “Oh, no it isn’t!” There is just something about pantomimes that really get those Christmas vibes out there. Even if the pantos themselves aren’t Christmas based, they’re just perfect for the festive season and are something that all the family can enjoy. We’ve picked three of our favourite pantos that are worth checking out this Christmas, so sit back and pick your favourite!
Beauty and the Beast at The Helix
Beauty and the Beast is an old favourite and it has certainly blown up again since the re-release of the 2017 movie. TheatreworX Productions now have their own comic adaption of Beauty and the Beast which will be performed at The Helix this year and the show is running until the 21st January 2018.
There’s also a sensory friendly adaption of Beauty and the Beast. This performance of the show will have no sudden noises or bangs, lower music and brighter lighting which makes it perfect for the whole family.
