The Woldingham Pantomime was back again over Christmas with a twist. The committee worked exceptionally hard to bring the annual production to our screens. The Woldingham Pantomime began as a village production back in 1948 with the WI performing ‘Red Riding Hood.’ The idea was to celebrate each New Year with a pantomime which was performed by the village for the village and the tradition has continued over the years to present day.
Local children and adults take part every year and recent years have seen the committee produce Aladdin, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty at the local village hall. They are hoping to be able to present ‘The Little Mermaid’ for this Christmas.
Katy Richards, organiser of the pantomime explained “The thought of a year going by without a little panto magic was unbearable so we put our thinking caps on. We have really enjoyed embracing the new normal and still be able to put on a small show. We are so grateful for everyone who has committed their time to bring this together. We hope to see you in 2021 at Woldingham Village Hall!”
Broadcasting the pantomime online enabled them to be able to carry on with the tradition in an innovative way while still enabling the cast to have fun. The committee have chosen to raise money for ‘The Lily Foundation’ and at the time of going to print they had raised £250 for the charity. The just giving link will be
