Potted Panto

The Panto is one of the best loved traditions of the British Christmas. It has entertained many generations of children down the years with its mixture of comedy and song in its retelling of popular fairy stories.

Pantomime can trace its roots all the way back to ancient Greece and Rome, and has elements of theatre from the Middle Ages. The first pantomime to grace an English theatre was recorded as Tavern Bilkers by John Weaver; not his most successful work as it turned out. It was performed in gestures and dance as spoken drama was not allowed in all but a few “patent theatres”. This continued until the law was changed in 1843.

It wasn’t until the 19th century that panto began to gain real popularity as its format developed into what we would recognise today. These shows are very formulaic with parts played by either gender: typically featured in the panto you would see the principal, co-principal, the panto dame, the comic lead and of course the evil villain. It should also be noted that the major productions stick to a small group of European fairy tales, mainly those written by Charles Perrault, Joseph Jacobs, Hans Christian Andersen, and the Brothers Grimm, whereas variations can be found among smaller drama groups who are prepared to use the tried and tested formula on other stories.

If you are undecided as to which pantomime to take your family to see this Christmas, why not see them all at once? Potted Panto is a madcap race through seven pantos in eighty minutes by double Olivier nominees Dan and Jeff. This crazy comic duo takes the audience on a hilarious ride through the world of pantomime as they quick-change their way through some of the best loved panto characters; touching upon classics such as Aladdin, Dick Whittington, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Jack and the Beanstalk and more. Potted Panto has something for everyone and will be enjoyed by the entire family.

The Phantom of the Opera

Taken from the novel by French writer Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of the hideously scarred ghoul who, it is rumoured, haunts the Paris opera house and causes the occasional accidents and mishaps that befall both cast and crew.

He develops an unhealthy obsession with a young Swedish chorus girl called Christine, whom he wishes to replace the resident soprano prima donna when he hears her sing. He tricks her into believing he is the angel of music, a figure her violinist father told her had taught her how to sing, and lures her to his underground lair beneath the opera house.

A love triangle develops including Christine’s childhood friend Raoul, the Compte de Chagny. Will the brave Raoul save his love from the hands of the jealous phantom? Or will the monster have his dreadful revenge?

With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics penned by Charles Hart with additions by Richard Stilgoe, The Phantom of the Opera has enjoyed phenomenal success since its first night in London’s West End way back in 1986.

James Bond Walking Tour of London

“Bond…James Bond”: one of the most famous lines from the movies ever. James Bond, Agent 007 of the British Secret Service, is certainly one of the most iconic movie heroes ever invented. His exploits have thrilled cinema-goers since Sean Connery first battled Dr No in 1962. The popularity of this film franchise is still growing as a new generation of fans flocked to see Bond’s 23rd outing in Skyfall, this time played by Daniel Craig. Will there be a 24th? Of course, like it always says at the end of the films: Bond will be back!

Created in 1953 by Ian Fleming, the character James Bond is one of the most recognisable in cinema history. It brought popularity to the spy film genre and has spawned a host of imitators: Harry Palmer, Matt Helm, Flint, The Man from UNCLE and more recently Austin Powers and Johnny English.

The appeal of this character is immense and it is easy to understand why. Who hasn’t dreamed of travelling the world to exotic places? Who wouldn’t wish to save the day and defeat the arch villain? Who doesn’t see themselves as charming and debonair, loved by all the women he meets? Drive the Aston Martin DB5, carry the Walther PPK and play with all the fabulous gadgets that Q Branch supply. This has to be nearly every schoolboy’s dream.

You have the chance to visit the places in London made famous by 007 on the James Bond Walking Tour. Visit more than 10 locations featured in the James Bond films, including the secret offices of Universal Exports. Learn more about the secret world of MI6 and find out where fantasy meets reality.

Ghost Bus Tours of London

When a city is as old and as heavily populated as London, you might expect the odd ghost or two to be lurking in the shadows. In fact, it is reckoned that the capital has more ghosts per square mile than any other city in the world. What better way to see to visit their haunts than on an old London Routemaster bus that was originally tasked with carrying the dead?

The Ghost Bus Tour is a comedy theatrical sightseeing tour that will have you laughing and shaking in equal measures as it winds through the streets of London at night. It passes some of the most haunted spots in the city: The Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey where John Broadshaw, who passed judgement on Charles I, wanders around. Also Father Benedictus, a monk who appears so solid that people have spoken with him and not known they have been conversing with a ghost! On to St Paul’s Cathedral and the most haunted of them all – The Tower of London. In the Bloody Tower you can hardly move there are that many famous ghosts: Anne Boleyn and Lady Jane Grey, both married to and the victim of that most caring of husbands, Henry VIII. The two princes, allegedly murdered by their uncle who became Richard III. Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of other spectral figures from the past, like Sir Walter Raleigh or Guy Fawkes.

The Necropolis Bus Service began life in the 19th century as a carriage to carry coffins, pallbearers and up to 50 mourners to the graveyard. The conductor served a dual role as the chief mourner and the bus had a special siren called the mourning whistle which announced its approach to pedestrians who would be expected to take off their hat and bow their heads as a sign of respect.

This continued until 1967 when a fire destroyed the original depot. The only vehicle to ‘survive’ was this fine old bus. Restored to its original midnight black and fitted out in a railway style for your comfort, the professional actors on this terrifying tour will tell you stories to make your hair stand on end.

Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour

Sherlock Holmes, the greatest literary detective of them all and a Great British icon known the world over. Get your tickets from to visit the places made famous by the great man.

Written by the Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes first appeared in A Study in Scarlet, way back in 1887. Since then he has appeared in four novels and fifty six short stories, as well as TV series and numerous films. The Guinness Book of Records lists Sherlock Holmes as the most portrayed movie character of them all, with more than 70 actors playing the part.

A highly popular and much loved character despite his cold and efficient image, he lived at 221B Baker Street with his friend, assistant and the narrator of many of the stories Dr John Watson, and housekeeper Mrs Hudson.

Throughout his career as a consulting detective, Holmes displays his astounding skills as a master of disguise, forensic genius and his powers of deduction wherein he can come to highly accurate conclusions from the smallest observation or clue. It is said that many of the techniques suggested by these works of fiction were actually adopted and are still used in modern policing.

Of course a hero can’t be a hero without a villain. This role was fulfilled by Holmes’ perfect foil: his arch nemesis, the evil genius Professor James Moriarty. The two poetically dying together locked in mortal combat at the end of The Final Problem when they plunge from the top of the Reichenbach Falls. Only for Holmes to return in The Adventure of the Empty House claiming he faked his own death to fool his enemies.

Jack the Ripper Walking Tour

There are several walking tours that you get tickets for on, but none could possibly match the fascination and intrigue of the Jack the Ripper Walking Tour.

One of the most infamous serial killers in the history of not only London but the whole world, Jack the Ripper has gripped the imagination of generations of writers, detectives and amateur sleuths; yet to this day nobody has uncovered the truth of the killers identity.

At around 3.40am on 31st August 1888, in Bucks Row Whitechapel, the body of a woman was discovered brutally murdered. So began a spate of killings that lasted the rest of that year and had the police baffled. The first victim was called Mary Anne Nichols and she was quickly followed to her grave by Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes and finally Mary Jane Kelly who was discovered horribly mutilated on her bed; her heart was missing.

Although there were other similar murders around that time, some say the victims numbered eleven, the police insisted that only these five were the work of the same man. Who knows the real death toll?

So why did he stop? It has been speculated that the killer may have died himself, or possibly emigrated. It could be that he was convicted of a separate crime and imprisoned or institutionalised. Or perhaps he was on a mission, deliberately targeting these particular women because of some dangerous information they were privy to, and stopped when the job was done!

The biggest question of all is whodunit? The Jack the Ripper Walking Tour takes you to the sites around the Whitechapel area where the Ripper struck, with the services of a professional guide and “Ripperologist”. They will tell you all the facts of the case, and then it is up to you who you believe the Ripper was!

Wembley Stadium Tour

Welcome to the home of English football. Wembley Stadium, with its unmistakeable arch reaching 436 feet in the air, stands proudly on the site where so much history has been made and you can enjoy it all on a tour that takes you to the heart of it all.

With a capacity of 90,000 seats, Wembley Stadium is the largest sports and music venue in the UK and the second largest football stadium in Europe. It was opened in 2007 on the same site as the original Empire Stadium which saw momentous events such as the 1948 Olympic Games and the 1966 World Cup Final.

The Wembley Stadium Tour takes you to places you normally only see on television: sit in Roy Hodgson’s hot seat in the press conference room, visit the home dressing room where England prepare for the upcoming game, feel the tension standing in the players tunnel before emerging on to the pitch, and feel the thrill of victory as you climb the steps to the Royal Box to accept the FA Cup.

Other highlights include visiting the VIP Club Wembley middle tier to get panoramic views of the stadium, The History Tour in which you can see, among the many exhibits, the original Olympic flag and torch from the 1948 games, and the infamous crossbar from the 1966 World Cup final, along with the Jules Rimet Trophy lifted by Bobby Moore.

This year the FA celebrates its 150th year. As part of the tour you get to see memorabilia collected over those years with the special FA150 exhibition; so many memories. As part of the exhibition you will see the original FA Cup, the FA Charity Shield and the original minute book from the inaugural meeting way back in 1872. A true piece of football history that is not to be missed.

The London Eye

The EDF Energy London Eye has become one of the most unmistakable sights on the famous London skyline since it was erected in 1999. It is also the most popular paid attraction, not only in London, but the entire UK with over 3.5 million visitors every year.

The London Eye is a huge Ferris wheel that stands on the South Bank of the Thames. It was when officially opened on 31st December 1999, the tallest of its kind in the world, standing at 443ft tall and with a diameter of 394ft. Now, only recently surpassed by two wheels in the Far East, it is still the largest in Europe and second only to The Shard for the highest viewing platform in London. As it is supported by an A-frame on one side only, unlike its rivals the Singapore Flyer and Star of Nanchang, it is the tallest cantilevered observation wheel in the world.

Each of the 32 seated and air conditioned ovular capsules, one representing each of the London Boroughs, weighs 10 tonnes and can comfortably carry 25 passengers. Amazingly, the wheel doesn’t actually stop to take on passengers unless they are elderly or disabled because it turns at a rate of only 10 inches per second. Passengers just step on and off. Then they are treated to a 30 minute ride where they can take in a view of up to 40 kilometres across London and beyond.

There are interactive touchscreen guides inside the capsules and also a London Eye 4D experience before joining the ride. This cinematic marvel, which features a 3D film with extra effects such as wind, bubbles and mist, will have the whole family enthralled.

Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds has proven to be one of the most popular London attractions since Marie Tussaud first came to live in Baker Street in 1835.

Yet Madame Tussauds is not just an array of famous figures both past and present; it has evolved to become much more than that. Along with the display of your favourite mighty Marvel superheroes, there is a breath-taking 4D film experience in which they have to save London from an evil super villain. You feel part of the action as it takes place all around you, while you actually feel everything from wind and water to earthquakes. An unforgettable treat for all the family.

Always renowned for its Chamber of Horrors, Madame Tussauds has gone one step further and introduced a new area called Scream. Here the inmates have taken over a maximum security prison and you find yourself right in the middle of it all this madness looking for a way out. A truly terrifying experience that is not recommended for the feint hearted.

Take to a London cab and go on a journey through London’s past in The Spirit of London and see the historical and cultural events that made the capital into one of the world’s great cities.

The Tower of London

For over 900 years The Tower of London has been one of the most familiar and iconic attractions in London. Originally a wooden palisade built in 1066 by William the Conqueror, the familiar stone central keep, The White Tower, was built somewhere around 1078 and came to symbolise the oppression of the native Anglo-Saxons by the despised Norman elite.

The Tower of London, or to give it its formal title: Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress, has undergone a few makeovers in its time with rings of defensive walls built. Henry III ordered it whitewashed, probably for cosmetic reasons or to protect the stone from weathering. He also extended the fortifications as he was having a slight disagreement with the Barons at the time.

Over the centuries it has had many functions, not just as a royal residence. It has been an armoury, a treasury, the Royal Mint, a public records office, a prison and even a zoo. Now it houses The Crown Jewels in one of the world’s most secure vaults.
There are probably more stories attached to the Tower of London than there are stones in its walls. If you take a guided tour by one of the Beefeaters or, as they are properly known, Yeoman Warder you will be regaled with tales of intrigue, betrayal, treachery and murder. It isn’t called The Bloody Tower for nothing!

The View from The Shard

That ever-young super group The Who sang that they could see for miles and miles. Now you can too. The View from The Shard, London’s newest and most eagerly anticipated attraction offers you all round panoramic views for up to 40 miles across one of the greatest cities on earth.

At a staggering 87 storeys, reaching up 306 metres (1004 feet) into the sky, The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe. Also known as The Shard of Glass, Shard London Bridge and formerly London Bridge Tower, this freestanding work of art was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano on the site that used to be occupied by the 24 storey office block Southwark Towers.

The Shard, essentially an elongated pyramid of glass, contains offices, a soon to be opened luxury hotel and a choice of three restaurants. Yet its crowning glory, quite literally, is the viewing platform which they have named simply The View. What a view it is too: sitting at the top of The Shard on floors 68, 69 and 72 it is the highest viewing platform in the UK, and almost twice as high as any other viewing platform in London.

Mamma Mia! at The Novello Theatre

When the stage production of Mamma Mia! first opened its curtains in 1999, who could have envisioned its mega success? Well, probably everybody, considering the fact that it is based around the songs of ABBA – arguably Sweden’s most popular export.

Written by Catherine Johnson with the songs composed by former band members Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! takes place on the Greek Island of Kalokairi where Sophie is about to be married. She wants to be walked down the aisle by her father, as tradition dictates, but she has no idea who her father is.

Sophie finds an old diary belonging to her mother. Within this diary are details of three men with whom her mother was intimate in quick succession in the time period before Sophie was born, indicating that one of them in all probability is her father. Yet which one is it? She decides to invite all three to her wedding…

Since its opening night Mamma Mia! has gone on to enjoy global success. It has grossed $2 billion worldwide and has been seen, enjoyed and sang along to by more than 54 million fans. It has been performed in more than 40 countries and translated into 14 languages. It holds the record for premiering in more cities faster than any other musical. It has also become a phenomena among cinema goers  too when it was adapted for the silver screen. The movie version starred luminaries such as Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan and became the highest grossing musical of all time worldwide.

Matilda at The Cambridge Theatre

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Matilda has been delighting audiences, both young and old, since its first opening night in 2010 in Stratford upon Avon. It has since moved to the Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End and has also opened on New York’s Broadway.

Based on the Roald Dahl story, Matilda tells of a little girl with a big imagination. Unhappy with her lot living at home with her mother, who is obsessed with ballroom dancing, and her father, a dodgy used car salesman. She also has little in common with her gormless brother. To take her away from all of this she spends her time reading, something her father disapproves of, he thinks watching television is far more worthwhile.

Life at school is no better under the strict regime of the demonic headmistress Miss Trunchbull who frightens both the children and their teacher Miss Honey. One day young Matilda Wormwood discovers she has a very special power and suddenly things begin to change…

Written by the playwright Dennis Kelly, with lyrics and music by the Australian musician and comedian Tim Minchin, Matilda has been showered with both critical acclaim and awards. It has won a place in the Guinness Book of Records by scooping an unprecedented seven gongs at the 2012 Laurence Olivier Awards.

Les Miserables Theatre Show

When it comes to musicals there are none that measure up to the daddy of them all. Les Miserables is now the longest running musical in the world, having been seen and adored by more than 62 million theatre goers in 42 countries around the world, since its first opening night 28 years ago.

Taking the audience back to 19th century France, Les Miserables tells the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his relentless pursuer Javert. Following 19 years serving his sentence on a chain gang, Valjean is given parole but is condemned to live as an outcast, shunned by society because he has to display his ‘ticket of leave’. His life is changed forever by the kindness of a Bishop who, despite Valjean stealing from him, lied to the police on his behalf to secure his freedom. His lesson learned, Valjean breaks his parole and changes both his name and his fate.

Valjean goes on to become a respected factory owner and town mayor, helping the unfortunate Fantine and her illegitimate daughter Cosette. All the time the shadow of the ruthless Javert casts long over his fortunes. 

The story follows them to Paris nine years later where a student lead rebellion is brewing on the streets and, once again, the paths of Valjean and his nemesis Javert will fatefully cross.

Les Miserables has also recently been a massive success on the silver screen with the movie starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway.

The Lion King

So, hands up who hasn’t seen The Lion King on DVD? There won’t be many hands raised one would suspect, especially if the people you are asking have children.

Following its success on film, and popularity among an entire generation of young fans, it might have seemed a daunting task to bring it to life on stage. Yet that is what has been achieved: life. The animal costumes show creativity and meticulous care; the movement, colour and sound, the wildlife in the stalls and the African soundtrack mixed with the now familiar pop songs from the talented, musical mind of Sir Elton John engages the audience and leaves them stunned. The theatre is alive, it feels like the East African plain and you are there.

Words like spectacular and extravaganza are so readily and easily thrown at musicals, when are they not described as such in their advertising? Yet these are crowns that sit so easily on this head; indeed, few are more deserving of these titles than The Lion King.

The whole family will be entertained by this visual delight as have millions of others who have attended performances of The Lion King for over a decade. Tickets are available now from
