Once upon a time in Hotwells, a group of people were chatting about how to cheer up the dark days of winter. “Let’s do a panto” they cried, and in 1981 the first Hotwells Panto was born. It has become a great Bristol tradition attracting an audience from all over and even an article in the National Press!
Created, written, designed, produced and performed by the local community, this panto is like no other: the live 8-piece band; the dramatic sets; the lavish costumes; the sheer variety of cast, from small children to octogenarians (some folks have been in every show) and the locally-written scripts, always promise to make it a night to remember.
The 40th pantomime, The Mardyke Mermaid will be on stage at Hope Chapel Hotwells from March 11th-14th 2020 starting at 7.30pm.
All profits are donated to local charities and good causes in the community.
“But why a Pantomime in March?” I hear you cry, well, that’s the easy bit; everyone’s busy in December – it’s Christmas!
(Oh yes it is!)
