Pantomime In York
Last year, Christmas theatregoers were in for a treat as local panto legend Berwick Kaler once again donned his dame wig in Granny Goose. Like the city itself, Kaler's panto delivered tradition, fun, spectacle and a feel-good factor that the entire family could enjoy. Kaler writes and stars in the York panto every year, so keep an eye on this page for news of the 2023 season and find out why he is established as one of the UK's greatest panto legends.
York is a city steeped in history and perhaps it is at its most beautiful at Christmas. The lights and decorations spread magic throughout the medieval streets and the St. Nicholas Fair brings families together for wholesome festive cheer. Meanwhile, Yorkshire Winter Wonderland features the largest ice-rink in the North of England, so get your skates on!
