Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates

Robinson Crusoe to now set sail in July 2021
It’s with great sadness and disappointment that we announce this year’s panto Robinson Crusoe has been rescheduled to July 2021. Our team have worked extremely hard behind the scenes and tried every possible avenue to put on a safe production for the community to enjoy this Christmas, however the ongoing restrictions mean we simply cannot go ahead.  The swashbuckling show will now run from Friday 9th to Saturday 17th July 2021 with all the usual panto fun you know and love. All ticket holders have been contacted directly and tickets remain valid for the new dates.

Ahoy me hearties! Young Robinson Crusoe has always had an appetite for adventure! Living with his old mother Dame Crystal Crusoe, his washed up Father Captain Crusoe and his silly billy brother Sprat, Robinson has no desire to take over the family Fish ‘n Chip shop. Meanwhile, the high seas are terrorised by the evil Captain Blacktashe in his search for the lost temple of treasure on Skull Island. But the map where X marks the spot has been lost for years… Will Robinson ever find his treasure? Will Dame Crusoe end up battered? And what is that mysterious writing on the back of the chip shop menu?

Find out in this swashbuckling pantomime adventure from the team behind last year’s hit show. Packed full of all of the usual show-stopping songs, dazzling dance routines and hilarious knockabout comedy. Written by Tom Whalley.

Sailing the Seven Seas Safely…
The safety and wellbeing of our audience and volunteers is our number one priority. To allow our panto adventure to take place safely, at the moment we’ve significantly reduced audience capacity and introduced a number of safety measures.

Bookings can now be made for our Panto Pods, your own group of seats socially distanced from other audience members. We have Panto Pods available for groups of 2, 4 and 6. (Pods of 2 available on 7th, 9th & 10th December only). Pods are priced £20, £40 and £60 accordingly.

Each Panto Pod may only be occupied one household or support bubble due to current government guidance. Please note this may change between now and July and we will advise accordingly.

Face coverings must be worn whilst inside the venue following government guidance. You may remove your face covering to enjoy food and drinks whilst sitting in your pod.

Any member of your group with symptoms of COVID-19, or who have been advised to self-isolate following contact with someone with symptoms of COVID-19, should strictly not attend the performance.
