We're thrilled to announce that panto will go ahead this Christmas at Chequer Mead and East Grinstead will not be deprived of it's eagerly awaited seasonal extravaganza!

Almost a Panto! is the shorter, fun-filled, COVID-secure pantomime for all the family featuring East Grinstead legends CALLUM DONNELLY (as THE boy) and KEVIN GAUNTLETT (as THE dame) as well as KATIE-ELIZABETH ALLGOOD (as THE girl).

Join them as we visit not one, but five pantomime favourites for the most marvellous mashup of madness for miles, which storms into Chequer Mead to save the day in place of our scheduled production of Jack & the Beanstalk.

Will good conquer evil again? Will the dame have wonderful frocks again? Will the girl fall for the boy, again? Will there be (safe) audience participation again?! ...and will everybody live happily ever after? Book now to find out if all our panto dreams come true... AGAIN!

Almost a Panto! will be less than 90-minutes and without an interval to assist with social distancing.

Tickets for this event go on general sale on Friday 23rd October at 10am. Customers with existing tickets for Jack & The Beanstalk have a pre-sale period from Monday 19th October to transfer their tickets. All customers have been sent an email with full details.
