I have to say I have been to a lot of pantos in my time and the panto I saw last night at the pavilion was really poor for many reason.

We visited the Pavillion as we have on many occasions, to see Ken Dodd. Although he is getting on in years his delivery and all round entertaining was really great. My wife travelled through there las Saturday to see the "Glesga Dance Mums" and enjoyed it. I must say that the theatre is always good value and we look forward... More
