Sleeping Beauty success
Sleeping Beauty had it’s last performance on New Year’s Eve and we are amazed with the incredible feedback this season brought.
We’d like to thank everyone who supported the show, and congratulate the cast and crew for yet another amazing pantomime. We also raised in excess of £3000 through donations. We appreciate your generosity.
Don’t worry though, we are back again this year with our 2024 pantomime, Robin Hood and the Magic Arrow.
This will be running from Fri 29 Nov 2024 – Sun 5 Jan 2025 and is on sale now. So book in advance and secure your favourite seats.

40 years of the Wilde Theatre
2024 marks 40 years since the Wilde Theatre was built, and to celebrate we are doing an Easter production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
We have recently announced our wonderful cast for the show: Bethany Nicholls as Belle, Sam Gillett as Beast, Keir Buist as Lumiere, Amy Cowie as Mrs Potts, Stuart Hayllor as Gaston and Gordon Cowell as Cogsworth.
Get your tickets today and enjoy this ‘tale as old as time’ from Tue 9 – Sun 14 April.

Donate your unwanted festive items
If you have any unwanted festive clothing items, we would love to take them off your hands!
We are looking for good condition men’s, women’s, children’s and even pet’s items of clothing that we can sell at a Christmas clothing stall at this year’s Craft and Design Fair. All proceeds will go to South Hill Park Trust.
So next time you come to South Hill Park, please bring them to the Box Office where we will gladly take your donated items.
