Our next pantomime starts in
Oh yes it does!
OUR BOX OFFICE IS OPEN NOW
After the success of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ in January, the Woodford Pantomime team have come up with a new show to fill the Sir James Hawkey Hall stage with lush, professional costumes, sets and lighting, as well as talented performers, lively tunes and of course, plenty of fun and laughter. We are very excited to announce that this year’s spectacular will be ‘Treasure Island’ a pantomime we have never performed before.
The script, a brand new one from Ben Crocker, has all the usual panto jaunts and jokes, together with plenty of pirate action. We can promise it will be every bit as exciting as our previous shows.
For this production we are pleased to once again have our special team of Dawn Young as Director, Ellouise Dennis as Choreographer and Musical Directors’, Mike Bates and Mark Smith.
We look forward to welcoming you to our 57th pantomime in Woodford!

Frequently Asked Questions
I would like to be in the next pantomime. When are your auditions?
Auditions are held in June. Please contact Jane at email@example.com for details. Child cast members must be 10 years old unless specifically required for a principal role.
Can my child sit on my lap?
Yes, children up to 2 years can sit on your lap but please be aware that buggies and carseats cannot be taken into the auditorium. Please ask a member of front of house for where it can be stored.
Are there space for wheelchairs?
Yes, but spaces are limited to 2 wheelchairs per performance so book early. The front of house team will be there to give any assistance needed.
Do card payments incur a booking fee?
Yes, we are sorry to say they do.
I am not a performer but would like to get involved. Who do I contact?
We are always looking for helpers in all areas including backstage, front of house and the set up. Please contact Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join the team.
Is it suitable for very young children?
It does rather depend on the child but generally aged two and upwards is best. It is a great introduction to theatre as it really doesn’t matter if they are not completely quiet – in fact we positively encourage it!
Can I take photographs?
No! Copyright and child protection laws forbid it.
How do I organise a birthday call out?
Contact one of the front of house staff on arrival.
Woodford Pantomime's so far
This is our first ever production of 'Treasure Island'
2018 was our seventh production of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'
An amazing £1650.00 was raised for MENINGITIS RESEARCH FOUNDATION in our bucket collections after each performance last year. This year we are supporting the ELHAP – a magical and unique charity – providing adventure play opportunities to disabled and disadvantaged children, young people and adults.
With many thanks to STOW BOTHERS for sponsoring us for the second year running.
Our thanks to the Woodford Pantomime for the help and support in making it a really wonderful event for the families who attended. Everyone really enjoyed it. We’ll definitely book again for next year!

If you didn't get a chance to see this year's Woodford Pantomine production at the Hawkey Hall you must put a reminder in your diary now for next year. It was an extremely funny show with some great audience participation that was enjoyed by all.
My grandchildren thought the show was 'fantastic' and they especially loved Buttons. It was the best panto I have seen and will never be going anywhere else in the future!
