Pantomime is back in Stevenage. Oh yes it is!

After last year's cancellation due to the coronavirus pandemic, the seasonal show is back with a bang.

Aladdin has opened at the Gordon Craig Theatre and the panto runs until Sunday, January 23, 2022.

Stevenage panto favourite Aidan O'Neill is back this year alongside Steven Serlin as the evil Abanazaar.
