Christmas pantomimes in London

Even in 2020, Christmas in London without a pantomime. Oh no it wouldn't...

By Andrzej Lukowski

It's safe to say that Christmas 2020 will not go down as the merriest one London has ever seen: most of the major seasonal pantomimes confirmed their cancellation back in the summer. However: that’s not to say there will be nothing. The National Theatre will be staging a socially distanced ‘Dick Whittington’ that will be only the second panto in its history. And there are rumours of more shows to come. Stay tuned.
