Statement of Support – December 2021

After nearly two turbulent years, the UK Pantomime Association hoped this season would bring joy and panto magic back to auditoriums and audiences across the UK. Sadly, we are now seeing productions forced to close again due to the pandemic.

We stand in solidarity with all pantomime companies, casts, crews, creatives and theatres to say that we are thinking of you right now.

We would particularly like to highlight that many producers have done, and continue to do their best to deliver entertainment to the nation under strict COVID-19 guidelines, as well as providing jobs to cast, crew and creatives under difficult financial circumstances, not least with no insurance available against COVID-19 disruptions.

A heartfelt ‘Thank you’ to everyone for their tenacity and commitment in keeping the pantomime spirit alive.
