THE LONDON PALLADIUM

Starring:
Paul O’Grady
Julian Clary
Paul Zerdin
Nigel Havers
Gary Wilmot
Matt Baker

SATURDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2018 –
SUNDAY 12TH JANUARY 2020

Enter a world of wonder at the home of pantomime, as the magical Goldilocks and the Three Bears come to the West End for Christmas! Following last year’s sold-out production of Snow White, for five weeks only the iconic London Palladium will be transformed into a sensational circus, where everything is possible and anything could (and will) happen.

This festive extravaganza is packed with riotous comedy routines, extraordinary special effects, hair-raising stunts, international circus acts and an all-star cast including Paul O’Grady who rejoins Palladium favourites Julian Clary, Paul Zerdin, Nigel Havers and Gary Wilmot alongside new addition Matt Baker (The One Show).

Dame Betty Barnum and her daughter Goldilocks’ circus is under threat from an evil rival circus owner and, with the help of their madcap circus friends, they’re battling to rescue their Big Top from ruin. Will they succeed? All seems lost, until three brilliant bears join the gang…

The Great British pantomime, staged in a traditional English pub! This unique twist on the Cinderella story sees all the characters you know, love and hate colliding in a local boozer, where the audience are welcomed to the heart of the action to witness pints spilled, mates pulled and hearts poured out on the karaoke.

Crammed with live music, mayhem and a touch of midnight magic, Cinderella will have you dancing in the aisles and laughing your baubles off. Think The Royle Family meets Elf, in a bespoke pub theatre within The Vaults complex beneath Waterloo station.

Award-winning theatre company Not Too Tame have teamed up with top theatre and TV writer Luke Barnes for this acclaimed new version of the classic Cinderella story, which premiered to rave reviews on a national tour last year.

So, get your mistletoe out, buy a drink from the on-stage bar, and shake your tinsel for some spectacular festive entertainment, because Cinderella is coming to town.
