The Kings of Theatre team is committed to bringing our audiences first class entertainment in a safe environment. As leader of this great team I have had to make some tough decisions in the last year.
I have always driven the team with an optimistic heart keeping us ahead of the curve and consistent with this we planned to re-mount our fabulous panto, Dick Whittington for the Summer. However, the messages we were getting from our customers were that they were still unsure about planning for the summer with lockdown easing not a certainty and the dangle of a much needed summer holiday still not confirmed.
This has led me to the very hard decision to not go ahead with this show as the costs of remounting would be circa £100,000 and are a risk too great until we know all measures are gone.
We wish all of our customers well and look forward to seeing many at our Open Days running May and June with more dates to follow. We will return with business back to normal with a fun packed Autumn season on 22nd August leading to our much loved and spectacular Christmas panto – Jack and the Beanstalk.
