    A hilarious show and great way to introduce youngsters to the uniquely British tradition of a pantomime. A great family show.
    A great view from this seat in the Garrick. It's a relatively small theatre so there are good sightlines anyway. We could see everything. We also had a child in our group and he was able to see very well too.

The Stalls in the Garrick Theatre are quite large, with the rear rows feeling quite distant and being affected by the overhang of the Circle. Rows AA-L are generally recommended in this area, with cheaper end of row seats still being better than rear seats.

The Circle is curved, giving a more side on view, however it does feel quite close to the stage and without a safety rail, views tend to be good. The Grand Circle also doesn’t feel as far away from the stage as at other theatres, however it has a similar curve.
Garrick Theatre, London interactive seating plan & seat reviews
The most hilarious and frenetic pantomime you will ever see, returned to London’s West End in Christmas 2016, as Potted Panto took centre stage at The Garrick Theatre for a fun-filled festive run. With shows having ran from the 10th December 2016 to 8th January 2017, this was the perfect Christmas outing for all the family.

Performing seven well-known pantomimes in only eighty action-packed minutes, may sound like a big challenge. Double Olivier Award-winning former CBBC TV presenters Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner were certainly up to the challenge, after having performed this ingenious Christmas play to countless audiences over the past few years in London’s West End.

The daring duo took a frantic madcap ride through all the best-loved stories and memorable characters from pantomimes past, including journeying into the Arabian night with Aladdin, walking the streets of Victorian London with Dick Whittington, trying to help Cinderella find her slipper, awaking Sleeping Beauty, escaping the Giant down Jack’s Beanstalk and bumping into Snow White and all seven of her Dwarves. How can only two people play seven Dwarves? Well audiences definitely found out how.

This was the ultimate Christmas theatre experience, no matter what your age was.

Potted Panto was created by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, best known as the double act Dan and Jeff, who having been former CBBC presenters, went on to create Potted Pirates, Potted Potter and Potted Sherlock.

Potted Panto was a great family treat at Christmas time, and was recommended for children aged 6 and up. It was the perfect bargain busting evening, giving you seven pantomimes for the price of one!

The show ran at The Garrick Theatre in London’s West End across the festive period, with performances from 10th December 2016 to 8th January 2017, with an official opening night on 11th December 2016.
Potted Panto is highly recommended for any family looking for an entertaining evening out this Christmas. With their hilarious and frantic stage presents, Dan and Jeff will have people of all ages crying with laughter.

Age Recommendations: Suitable for ages 6+
