The Godmother of all pantomimes is BACK (now with added girl power!)

It's panto time and you shall go to the ball! 

eight-freestyle's wildly popular panto returns with a girl-power spin on the traditional rags-to-riches tale of CINDERELLA! And this time, they’re teaming up with Contact Young Company!


Get ready for some fairy tale magic as the awesome team that brought you the mega-hit 'Robin Hood: The 80s Panto' last season is back in action! And this time, we're diving into the greatest fairy tale of all time! So, hop aboard your giant pumpkin because we're about to take you on the most fantastic ride of your life!

Picture this: Cinder fighting her way to freedom from her not-so-charming stepsisters and their, well, let's say unique fashion choices. Brace yourself for the wacky inventions of Lord Stoneybroke, have a good laugh with Buttons, and join us on a quest to help the Prince find that elusive true love! And guess what? It's all happening to the coolest tunes spun by none other than DJ Dandini!

With our regular cast of all-singing, all-dancing performers, this show is not just for the little ones; it's a treat for the young-at-heart grown-ups too! Get ready for a friendly and fun-filled adventure that blends classic charm with a modern twist. This is one magical experience you won't want to miss! So, grab your popcorn, bring the family, and let's make some unforgettable memories together!


We're over the moon to present a range of performance categories for Cinderella at varying price points. 

From dry events to adults-only shows (featuring afterparties!), as well as a variety of access provisions, there's something for everyone this panto season.
