What is a Panto you ask? Panto – or pantomime to give it its full name – is a peculiarly quirky British form of family entertainment. Traditionally put on around the Holiday season/New Year, Pantos are largely based on any number of fairy tales. Every Panto production is different with great scope for improvisation and ad lib. However, there are a number of traditions common to all shows.
