Let your hair down this Christmas at a panto at one of the cosiest theatres in the area.

Chipping Norton Theatre is the home of the traditional family panto and were ranked nationally as one of the must see pantos by The Telegraph in 2019 who described them as ‘one of the dinkiest and most warmly enjoyable pantos in the land!’.

This year's panto is Rapunzel with knights and maidens, sword fights and sea-storms, sweeties and singalongs.

Poor Rapunzel has been stuck in a castle tower for 18 years, imprisoned by a witch’s magical powers. But she’s not the sort of girl to let that defeat her. With the help of her Nanny, a charming yet cheeky Prince, and an awful lot of hair, she’s going to escape into the big wide world.

Our pictures show JJ Henry performing as the nanny Dame Brunhilde Blunderberg, Alex Cardall as our hero Rudi and Rhian Lynch performing as Rapunzel.

See website for more details; the show runs until January 9 2022.
