Think Christmas is cancelled this year? Oh no it’s not! That’s the clear message from Victoria Theatre, home to the wonderful Christmas pantomime. It’s very much business as usual at this Halifax institution, hosting a year-round programme of big names in entertainment, music and comedy.
Right now, it’s all about that Christmas panto, with Jack and the Beanstalk running from December 11th to January 2nd. Quality is the name of the game, with dazzling creativity and fabulous production taking centre stage, even if your favourite Hollywood star isn’t! As for the atmosphere, it’s going to be electric. That’s partly because the show is so good, and partly thanks to the theatre’s current policy of running at full capacity. Don’t be nervous though – to keep things safe they ask every visitor for proof of vaccination or a negative lateral flow test, and the response has been fantastic (thank you, Halifax folk, you can take a bow for that).
