With university finished for the year and Christmas just a few days away, how about a visit to the pantomime? Pantomimes are a great Christmas tradition for many people in the UK and they will get you in the festive spirit. “Oh no they won’t!” you say. Oh yes, they will! Here’s some of the top pantomimes on right now in London…
Cinderella – The London Palladium
Immerse yourself in an enchanting fairy tale of the young woman who swaps her old rags for a sparkly new ball gown, and meets her Prince Charming – all with a little help from her Fairy Godmother. Set on the stage of the West End’s most famous theatre, and featuring an all-star cast, this is a must see this Christmas. Showings are limited and your last chance to see the pantomime will be when the clock strikes 6pm on 15th January 2017.
