30th November 2016

The pantomime cast has arrived at Watersmeet and the place is buzzing with song and dance as every space in the venue is being used for pantomime rehearsals.

Schools have been contacted inviting children to post their letters to Santa in the Christmas post box situated in the foyer where each one will be individually answered by the big man himself!  Gift requests have included the usual popular items, but one particularly challenging question asked by a child this year was ‘How do you choose the next Santa when you pass away?’

Josh Sills, Venue Manager, will be welcoming over 15,000 patrons through the door and commented: ‘The set is in and looks amazing, the songs this year have been chosen for their relevance to the story and I can’t wait for it all to start’.


The curtain goes up on this year’s pantomime of Jack and the Beanstalk on 8 December when Lee Latchford-Evans, who sold over 20 million records with pop super group Steps will star as Jack.  Lee will be joined by comedy star and one of the stand-out contestants from Britain’s Got Talent, Darren Altman.  Darren is known to millions as the man of a thousand voices who wowed judges on the hit talent contest with his impressions of some of Britain’s top stars.
