We laughed from start to finish - expect to get a little wet (audience participation) 3D was brilliant as were the Stars. We go every year in January and have never had to complain. Awesome

From the start to finish the pantomime was thoroughly entertaining.The cast were brilliant and were obviously enjoying performing as much as the audience did watching.Plenty of of audience participation. John Barrownan great as Dick Whittington ,Matt Slack (Mr Birmingham Panto) better than ever and the Krankies a revelation,Steve McFaddon at his evil best!.Get along and see it before it ends.

This was the best Pantomime my family and I have ever seen. Plenty of entertainment for children and adults alike. A modern twist to it, yet the "old fashioned theme" was still there. Our three generation family all enjoyed it. Well done Birmingham Hippodrome - fantastic.
