The excitement is already mounting for 2017's panto season, with Dick Whittington set at its glittering heart like a jewel. It's a story everybody loves, full of adventure and fun. Are the streets of London rally paved with gold? You'll have to come and see.

Qdos Entertainment's Chairman Nick Thomas is by all accounts overwhelmed by the remarkable response generated by their production of Cinderella, which effortlessly broke the Box Office record for the highest grossing week in the West End. So when Really Useful Theatres invited his company back to the venue – London's iconic home of variety shows - to deliver another big panto favourite, they jumped at the chance.

Qdos is famous for being the world’s biggest pantomime producer, and they've been at it for the past 35 years. They're one of Europe's biggest entertainment companies and have staged more than 650 pantomimes during their lifetime. During the 2016 festive season alone they fully expected to entertain, thrill and delight at least 1.6 million theatregoers.

The London Palladium has an equally impressive history, owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Theatres Group and a venue every stage performer dreams of treading. It has played host to more Royal Variety Performances than any other theatre and is rightfully proud of its deep roots in the variety scene. Countless world class musicians, performers and comedians have graced the stage there over the years, and pantomime returned with a bang in 2016 after a three decade absence.

The story of Dick Whittington never fails to delight. Book your tickets now to guarantee seats for this real festive treat in 2017.

Best Panto so far

Thought the show was absolutely fabulous. The subtle rudeness, the flamboyant costumes and acting was tremendous. The cast was great, loved every single one of them. One of my all time favourite has to be Julian Clary he just makes it stand out. Well done I be definitely back next year.

London Box Office customer

Fantastic costumes.

Great show worth going. But the theatre the Palladium is old and needs a modernisation in the public parts. Toilets a disgrace. Out of 5 one was out of order!! Long long queues!!!

Sheer majestical magic

Amazing cast. Superb staging & special effects. Elaine Paige just needs to brush up on her lines!!! Would maybe play Memories or Don't Cry for me Argentina to the younger generation so they know who she is & why she sings to those particular tunes....

A riot

A riot of colour, jokes, performances everything was just perfect. Standing ovation so well deserved. Huge congratulations to everyone front and back stage all involved, nothing could have been bettered. In my 71 years I have seen a panto practically every year but this production is by far the best I have ever seen.

London Box Office customer

Dick Whittington We’re barely into Spring but it’s already time to look forward to Pantomime, the UK’s traditional Christmas theatre treat. Two PR firms have announced festive productions in the last few days, one gigantic the other niche.

Let’s start with the giant. Last Christmas panto expert Michael Harrison brought large scale, big budget pantomime back to the London Palladium where it used to reign supreme in the 1950s and 60s. His Cinderella had an all star line up, was nominated for an Olivier Award and although rumours persisted that they were struggling to sell enough seats at the high ticket prices it’s widely regarded as having been a success.
