Mayflower Theatre Statement 9 Dec 2021

We wanted to clarify the process for attending our venue as a result of the latest government guidelines:

  • Face coverings MUST be worn throughout our venue unless you are exempt or when you are eating/drinking. We will not ask our Front of House staff to police the wearing of masks and we will not expect them to confront members of the audience who do not comply.
  • You DO NOT require a vaccine passport to visit our theatre as we are a seated venue.
  • Please be considerate to our hard working staff and to each other; it is Christmas and a time for us all to enjoy ourselves with some pantomime magic.


A strictly magical star cast has been announced with Craig Revel Horwood as The Wicked Stepmother, Debbie McGee as The Fairy Godmother and the legendary Richard Cadell & Sooty in Mayflower Theatre’s pantomime for 2021 - Cinderella.

With over 50,000 theatregoers attending each festive season it's never too early to book for next year's show!

You shall go to the ball next Christmas with the spectacular family pantomime Cinderella. Packed with all of the traditional pantomime ingredients audiences expect, Cinderella features laugh out loud comedy, stunning scenery, beautiful costumes and plenty of boos and hisses. Join Cinders as she goes from rags to riches, outwits her very wicked sisters and meets her dashing Prince Charming.

The clock is ticking, so book your tickets now!

Running Time

Approximately 2 hours 15 minutes including an interval.

Age Advice:

All ages are welcome, including under twos.

Pantomime is really exciting, but it can also be a bit loud and scary in places and sometimes has the odd naughty joke for the grown-ups to enjoy.  Please bear this in mind if you are planning to bring children under the age of 5 or anyone of a nervous or sensitive disposition.  If you would like any further guidance on the content of this year's pantomime please call our Box Office team on 02380 711811.  We would be happy to talk through any concerns you may have to reassure you before your visit.
