Pantomime is coming ‘home’ to the London Palladium in the very heart of Theatreland, after a 29 year absence. A magical production of the classic rags-to-riches tale Cinderella will be transformed into a breath-taking family extravagansa with glittering sets made especially for this iconic West End stage. The production will run from Friday 9 December 2016 until Sunday 15 January 2017.

The London Palladium was synonymous with lavish annual pantomimes from 1948-1987, and attracted some of the biggest stars of the day, including Julie Andrews, Sir Cliff Richard, Peter Sellers, Cilla Black and Ronnie Corbett, but the festive cornerstone has been absent for almost 30 festive seasons.

The last panto to grace the London venue was Babes in the Wood which starred such television deities as Dame Barbara Windsor, Cannon & Ball and Rod Hull and Emu.

This year however the art form will be given a spectacular West End revival by Qdos Entertainment, who over the past 34 years has produced over 650 pantomimes, with shows spanning the length and breadth of the country from Belfast to Southend and Plymouth to Aberdeen.

Tickets go on sale from 10am on Friday 15 April 2016 from
