2021

For the UK, 2021 started with a government enforced national lockdown due to the ongoing situation with the Covid-19 pandemic. It soon became clear that the pandemic that had forced many theatre's to close their doors back in March 2020 would continue to massively impact theatres and their planned programming for 2021. With this in mind less Easter and half term pantomimes were planned for the year due to the increasing uncertainty.
