The world wide outbreak of Covid-19 had a devesting effect on pantomime for this season. It was a confusing year with venues open, then closed, reopening then having to close again, shows were cancelled and later replacement shows confirmed and then sadly cancelled again. It makes for a very messy page for the season that was being updated daily as the situation continued to change.

CANCELLED PERFORMANCES
