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
Some of the cancelled performances for this season may have been moved to the 2021/22 season - see listings here
