Last week my children (aged 11 and 6) and I were lucky enough to be invited along to the press night for the New Theatre Royal’s 2019 pantomime, Robin Hood.

It’s sometimes difficult to find something to entertain both ages for a couple of hours plus have a laugh of my own and I am happy to say that Robin Hood delivered this and much more.

From puns and silly jokes (some over their head but made me chuckle!) , to new songs and some old classics, we all laughed, booed, hissed sang and clapped our way through a wonderful evening.

My daughter loved Robin and Maid Marian whilst my son preferred the general silliness of Will Scarlett and Archibald Runt.  There’s something about a great panto that makes for a lovely family outing and comments like “best night ever” and Want to go again”  suggest that Robin Hood will be a hit with all ages this Christmas.
