Dame Dora’s Panto Party in Hailsham has been cancelled ‘with great sadness.’

That’s Entertainment Productions and Circus proprietors Acting Moon were due to stage the event twice daily at Hailsham Big Top adjacent to Knockhatch Adventure Park Hailsham from December 28th.

Now we are in Tier 4 it is off.

East Sussex School of Circus Arts has now said: “It is with great sadness that we are announcing that the run of Dame Dora`s Panto Party at the Hailsham Big Top this year is to be cancelled.

This is due to the increased transmissibility of coronavirus in the south and further lockdowns planned by the government.

Customers will be contacted by the box office for a full refund.

It has been a very tough year for theatre, and our management, cast and crew were very much looking forward to their first Christmas Season in Hailsham, and really appreciated all the support we have been given by you, our audience.

The good news is that we plan to return with Dame Dora next Christmas. In the meantime, we hope you will join us for our Easter Pantomime, Goldilocks – Tickets are on sale now at www.onlineticketseller.com

We wish you a very happy and safe Christmas and a healthy New Year- see you soon!”

Chris Gidney & Renato Pires – Producer and Circus Director
