Pantos and Christmas shows at London theatres for 2019


ActDrop Christams tree

British audiences love their festive pantos - and there are plenty of them coming this year to London theatres.


Pantos usually find their way into theatre schedules during the festive period from about the beginning of December to the end of January each year.


Pantos are mostly aimed at family audiences - BUT take care because some are meant for ADULTS ONLY and may contain strong language or themes that might not be suitable for your kids - check listings for age recommendations.


Apart from pantos, we also list traditional and special Christmas shows that play during the festive season.


We have 99 pantos and Christmas shows listed.
