Pantos and Christmas shows for 2018
Pamtomime, or 'panto' for short, is a typically British form of stage entertainment.
Pantos mostly take place during the festive period from around the beginning of December to the end of January each year.
They are generally intended for family audiences - BUT be aware that a few are for ADULTS ONLY and may contain strong language or
material unsuitable for children.
Also included below are traditional and special Christmas shows that are not pantomime, but find their way into the schedules during the festive season.
We have 41 pantos and Christmas shows listed.
