Pantos at London theatres for 2017
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 mostly intended for family audiences - but be aware that a few are for adults only and may contain strong language or
material unsuitable for children.
We have 28 pantos listed.
