Robin Hood pantomime at Nottingham Theatre Royal postponed until 2021
This year's pantomime at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham, has been postponed because of ongoing uncertainty surrounding coronavirus.
Family favourite Robin Hood will now be staged in December 2021.
The decision was taken because there is still no confirmed timescale for theatres to open without social distancing.
It was taken alongside pantomime producer Qdos Entertainment.
Dave Trimble, portfolio holder for leisure, culture & IT at Nottingham City Council, said: “The pantomime at the Theatre Royal has always been the biggest, most spectacular Christmas production in the region with sell-out audiences across the run. Unfortunately, the uncertainty that the current situation brings means we would be unable to replicate this on stage or within the auditorium this year.
"We have therefore taken the decision to reschedule Robin Hood as next year’s pantomime and look forward to presenting the ultimate pantomime adventure in its rightful home then.
"Whilst it is clearly not possible to undertake a full scale production this Christmas we are continuing to explore other options with our pantomime partner should the situation change closer to Christmas.”
Customers will be contacted by the venue directly to confirm the date and time of the performance that their tickets have been rescheduled to.
