A British Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a trip to see Panto. Whether you prefer a local community show with the village postman dressed as a fairy, or a sprawling all-singing, all-dancing production on a big stage, all Pantomimes are linked by centuries of tradition and ritual constantly updated and revived for contemporary audiences.
In this 2-hour session, Vikki Stone will take you through her vast experience writing contemporary Pantomimes, sharing top tips and tricks along the way. Christmas 2024 might seem a way off, but it’s never too early to start thinking about panto!
