This year’s Christmas panto at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe will be postponed until Christmas 2021.

The panto is one of the biggest in the Humber region with more than 23,000 tickets sold last year and is the single biggest event in the theatre’s calendar.

Press Release

Scunthorpe’s largest Christmas pantomime has been postponed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Dick Whittington, which was due to run this December at The Baths Hall, has been postponed until 2021. The event, which stars the hugely popular Annie Fanny, would have run between 9 and 31 December and likely hosted around 23,000 people during the run.

Dick Whittington will now take place in 2021 and all tickets remain valid for new shows. Ticketholders will be contacted directly with details of the new events.

Dan Harris, General Manager at The Baths Hall, said: “We have waited as long as we could in the hope we would receive guidance which meant we could have hosted this year’s pantomime, but unfortunately time has run out. Christmas won’t be the same without our pantomime.”

Darren Johnson, who writes the pantomime and stars as popular Dame Annie Fanny, said: “After careful consideration, we at the pantomime have made the devastating decision to postpone this year’s pantomime, Dick Whittington, from 2020 to 2021. Like many theatres up and down the land we have had to hold off for as long as we possibly can before making this announcement, hoping above hope that something would happen. But with clear guidance not coming until November at the earliest, that would be too late to put a pantomime together.”

Producer Tony Peers said: “Usually at this time of year I am starting to think about the welcome letter for pantomime.  It is with a heavy heart that we find ourselves in the position of having to postpone this years show.  The safety of everyone is always uppermost in our mind and we have been left with no option but to postpone this years production until Christmas 2021.”

The 2021 run will now take place between 8 and 31 December 2021.

Dan Harris added: “Although we looked at hosting a socially distanced version, this would have meant a smaller cast, a smaller production and almost certainly no audience interaction. It just wouldn’t be a pantomime we would all be comfortable in hosting. Tickets remain valid for Christmas 2021 and we can’t wait to see everyone then.”

Tickets for the 2021 pantomime are now on sale from www.bathshall.co.uk
