Pantomime in Manchester 2024

Manchester is one of the UK’s best cities for Christmas entertainment and their pantomimes are no exception. The first pantomime in the city was performed in the late 1800s, with the Opera House alone having held over 30 star-studded productions through the years. The iconic venue has been the host to many big names throughout the festive season, such as David Hasselhoff, Craig Revel Horwood and Priscilla Presley.

Manchester pantos are typically big-name fairytales that people of all ages know and love and 2024 promises more of the same. In recent years, audiences have been wowed by Peter Pan, Jack and the Beanstalk, Dick Whittington and more. Book your tickets for a Manchester pantomime this Christmas season.
