We are so sorry to tell you that we are cancelling this year’s pantomime Sleeping Beauty.

We’ve not taken this decision lightly - it’s our favourite time of year: welcoming everyone involved and everyone who comes to enjoy the singing, dancing, lights, music, costumes and laughter.

Putting on such a large production simply isn’t practical, and may not be safe, whilst we are still social distancing.

Although December feels a long way off, our preparations have already begun. We would usually start rehearsing soon after the summer, and we don’t see that being possible this year.

If things change we would hope to put on some small-scale shows later in the year, but we hope you understand that we can’t be certain of anything at the moment. To make sure you hear about what’s happening, subscribe to our newsletter: /subscribe



This unprecedented crisis will hit our theatre hard and in order to survive we're going to need your support.

If you're financially able, please consider thinking of your ticket purchase as a donation or taking a credit note to use for a future production.

Of course, we will issue a full refund if you'd prefer.

Please note, the Box Office is currently closed. However, if you choose to receive a refund this will be noted and we will get in touch to process it once we are advised it is safe to re-open. At the moment we cannot say when this will be.

If you have not heard from us (please check your Junk ail) please email boxoffice@peoplestheatre.co.uk letting us know if you’d like to – 

  • Take a credit note
  • Make a donation (full)
  • Make a donation (partial)
  • Receive a full refund  

We look forward to welcoming you back to the People's as soon as we're able.
