It's with a heavy heart that we must announce that this year's panto, CINDERELLA, has been rescheduled to Christmas 2021. You shall go to the ball! Just not this year 😢

Due to the continuing uncertainty around when theatres will be able to re-open without social distancing, the Hippodrome, along with producers Qdos Entertainment, have taken the decision to postpone.

Panto is one of the most exciting times of year here at the Hipp and we’ll miss seeing theatregoers of all ages enjoying their festive treat 🎄 But we now look forward to welcoming everyone back in 2021 for what promises to be a spectacular return for our famous panto ✨

During the theatre's closure period, we've greatly appreciated the support and patience you've displayed as we face a difficult period with a reduced team.

Cinderella ticket holders will be contacted as soon as possible with details on how they can move this year's tickets into 2021. In the meantime, if you prefer a full refund, then can contact the theatre on 01325 405 405 (Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm) or email
