Our picks: Pantos in Surrey this festive season…

Every family loves a good Christmas panto, it’s time to unwind with the kids and get into the Christmas sprit.
 
Panto, short for pantomimes, is a type of musical comedy, and is normally performed around Christmas and New Year in the UK. Some of the best known modern pantos include the Jack and the Bean Stalk, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and his cat, Peter Pan, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Puss in Boots and many more, these are all based on popular children’s stories. The great thing about pantomimes is that they are really suitable from any age from 18 months up, so if you have very little ones the whole family can be entertained.
