Cinderella – 2021 Christmas Panto

While current ticket holders are being contacted, available bookings are currently not being taken. General booking will reopen on 1 November.

Following South Hill Park’s fastest and best-selling pantomime ever (Aladdin 2019), the magic returns to the Wilde Theatre with a brand new version of the timeless tale Cinderella (opening Fri 26 Nov 2021).

Cinderella must go to the ball and meet her prince – but what evil tricks will the wicked step sisters play to stop Cinders finding her happy ending?

So no ‘ifs’ or ‘Buttons’, join us for a 2021 festive season filled with fabulous fun, colourful characters, slapstick comedy, enchantment and all the creative sparkle you’ve come to love in this Great British pantomime favourite.

An award-worthy pantomime! Dick Whittington And His Cat (2018) was highly regarded by the Great British Pantomime Awards with a nomination for Best Script (Joyce Branagh). Our talented designer Victoria Spearing won the award for Best Staging/Set Design.

Hi Rose, thank you for your message.

We are sad to say that South Hill Park’s management and Board have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year’s production of Cinderella to 2021. All current Cinderella ticket holders are being contacted, so please do not contact the Box Office at this time if you are a ticket holder, they will be in touch as soon as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Cinderella next year. Thank you.


Hi there, is the south hill Christmas Panto going ahead this year?


Hi Melody, thank you for your message.

Unfortunately our 2020 pantomime Cinderella has been postponed until 2021. We look forward to welcoming you to Cinderella next year.

Thank you.



Are you still contacting people that have booked tickets for 2020 please, as I haven’t received anything yet?

Thank you.


Hi Nicola. Yes, our Box Office team are still working their way through contacting everyone who booked for the 2020 panto, so don’t fear. We only have one Box Office member working at the moment, so it may take a few weeks to get through everyone.


Hi Andi,

Thank you so much for getting back to me and letting me know.
