The UK has a strong tradition of delivering world-class entertainment for all ages at Christmas, and Liverpool is no exception. Liverpudlians and visitors from across Merseyside have come together to enjoy festive shows since the Victorian era, and the Empire Theatre even opened with a pantomime in 1896 - Cinderella. The venue has welcomed many a star onto its stage during panto season since, including Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black and Ken Dodd.
Although not hosting the Liverpool pantomime in 2022, audiences are in for a treat at the Empire as heart-warming musical White Christmas, based on Irving Berlin’s film, visits over the festive period. Whether you're watching toe-tapping choreography or falling under the cosy spell of a classic showtune, nothing helps you ease into Christmas quite like a trip to the theatre.
