Newcastle Panto Company are back ! New venue and VIP ticket giveaway

It's no secret that we are huge fans of Christmas here at North East Fun HQ. If you aren't already aware, I also write a dedicated Christmas blog (NorthEastChristmas.co.uk), run a Facebook group dedicated to Christmas in the North East and have even set up a Christmas Instagram account. Too much?? I am a firm believer that it's never too early to talk about the C word and in fact I've already mentioned how I've started saving for Christmas this year so technically, this isn't my first Christmas post. It's a good one though, and I can't wait to share it with you.

Last year we reviewed Beauty and the Beast at Tyne Theatre and Opera House. Newcastle Panto Company were well-established and had been the theatre's in-house panto for years. Watching Newcastle Panto Company at the Tyne Theatre has always been a Christmas highlight for us. Christmas just isn't Christmas without Dottie and Lottie performing their version of the 12 Days of Christmas and it has been part of our Christmas tradition for as long as H, H and J can remember. So we were all bitterly disappointed to hear that 2016 would be the last year Newcastle Panto Company would be performing at Tyne Theatre and have been eagerly awaiting (and hoping for) an announcement that this would not signal the end of Newcastle Panto Company.

Last year we reviewed close to 10 different Christmas productions and Newcastle Panto Company is always the one that doesn't need fancy stage props, special effects or gimmicks - the heart of their panto is traditional family fun with lots of laughs which I think sets them apart from other productions in the North East.

Anyway.......I'm pleased to announce that Newcastle Panto Company are back!! Yeah!

  1. Its seems crazy thinking about Christmas now, but we've already started to book Panto Tickets! Newcastle Panto did a great show last year and I'm sure their new venue will allow them to continue. Pantomime and Christmas creates that perfect family set up where the humour tickles the kids and is generally encrypted enough to entertain the adults too.


I always love reading your thoughts and comments - Sam x
