Forty years ago a group of people were chatting about how to cheer up the dark days of winter. “Let’s do a panto” they cried, and thirty-nine years ago the 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, scripted, 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) always promise to make it a night to remember.
All profits are donated to local charities and 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!)
