Christmas just isn’t Christmas without a family trip to a pantomime. Cries of ‘it’s behind you’, ‘oh no it isn’t, oh yes it is’ and ‘boo and hiss’ just can’t be beaten as we watch our favourite stars tell the age-old tales with the added twists and jokes that we all love. To make a trip to the pantomime even more special why not treat the family to a pre or post theatre meal at a Legacy Hotel?
Whether it is a luxurious lunch, tasty afternoon tea or delicious dinner, Legacy Hotels provide a perfect location for a panto treat. Here are a selection of pantomimes taking place near our hotels:
Chilworth Manor in Southampton
At the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton guests can boo and hiss at Strictly baddie Craig Revel Horwood, giggle at kids favourites The Chuckle Brothers and be amazed by dance sensation Flawless in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
New Place, Shirrell Heath
New Place is ideally located between Southampton and Portsmouth, allowing guests can choose between the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton or heading to Portsmouth for either of the two pantos in town.
At The King’s Theatre in Portsmouth TV presenter Melinda Messenger will be adding some glamour as Fairy Sparkle in their version of Snow White with Anita Harris playing the evil Queen Malevola. Snow white runs from 5 December to 1 January.
Alternatively, The New Royal Theatre in Portsmouth is where you will find the beautiful tale of Beauty and the Beast from 14 December to 31 December.
The Rose and Crown in Salisbury
In the Salisbury Playhouse there will be magic beans and giants galore in Jack and the Beanstalk which runs from 2 December to 7 January.
