We ladies went to "ELFIES" panto just last week. Front row seats Saturday afternoon. From start to finish it was Magic! Never laughed so much in ages. Back to childhood joining in with the usual panto antics. The cast scenery music singing and dancing uplifting. The Pavilion has a great atmosphere every time.

Something different to do on a Sunday so visited here to see Elfie's Magical Adventure. A bit of a climb to our seats but worth it. Great show

No storyline, not funny, unclear diction, waste of time, money effort and energy. Kids were bored, some parties left and how sensible they were! Wouldn't recommend this to anyone, embarrassing is an understatement!

For many years the Pavillion Xmas panto has been a fabulous family attraction. Not so this year. This panto was the poorest experience - no story line - too much shouting - if the audience had not been required to participate with all the booing etc, there would have been very little content. Please, next year get back to traditional... More
