Visually, Pantoland at the Palladium is a glossy, striking affair. Ian Westbrook’s set design, – resulting in a grand variety show to honour Palladium pantomime as an institution.

“Since the Palladium pantomimes have come so close to just being flat-out variety shows in their five-year recent history, why not just abandon any lingering fig leaf of fairytale and get on with the bawdy or spectacular or beau tifully bananas set pieces?”
Posters from pantos past adorn the Palladium’s proscenium from 1973’s Jack and the Beanstalk starring Frankie Howerd and Dora Bryan to 1987’s Babes in the Wood with Barbara Windsor and John Inman. From Norman Wisdom to Tommy Steele and Julie Andrews to Cilla Black, the show is literally framed by its illustrious heritage. 2021 adds a new name to the pantomime pedigree, and one that made his
UK première almost 50 years ago on the Palladium stage: Donny Osmond.
The Mayflower’s pantomimes have built a reputation for being blockbuster spectacles – and justifiably so. The production values are as slick as ever, the sets and costumes dazzling, and there is a very impressive special effect to end the first act that had our boys out of their seats.
