Like all Everyman Theatre fans we were disappointed to receive the news that our beloved panto will not go ahead this year due to the pandemic...

Announcement made by Mark Goucher, Everyman Theatre Chief Executive 14 September 2020 –

It is with great regret that we announce the postponement of the Everyman Theatre's pantomime for 2020. We will now be presenting Jack and the Beanstalk, starring Tweedy in November 2021.

We are working diligently behind the scenes to make sure that the theatre is ready to welcome you back when we're afforded the opportunity to return to full operating capacity. Booking your tickets now will help us toward that goal and ensure that we celebrate the new season with the full glitz and glamour that you've come to expect from the Everyman Theatre Pantomime.

As the theatre closure, due to the COVID crisis, has extended beyond six months it has become apparent that our originally planned production, designed for a full auditorium, would present too much risk. With strict social distancing measures now in place, and likely to be in place for the remainder of this calendar year, the scheduled production of Jack and the Beanstalk is untenable this season.

The theatre has recently run pilot a pilot performance presenting a smaller capacity production, with social distancing measures in place, and will be presenting further productions in the future. These shows will not mark a return to normality, but they will allow us to determine the viability of socially distanced events during this temporary diversion from our normal business. We remain positive that the New Year will see a loosening of the current restrictions and a return to full operating capacity.

We thank you for your ongoing support and your continued commitment to the future of the Everyman. Booking your tickets for the rescheduled performances of Jack and the Beanstalk and our other upcoming productions is the best way to show your support for what we do.

We will keep you updated on the success of our pilot socially distanced productions, our rescheduled 2020 events and the star-studded new productions we will welcome in 2021.

We hope to see you all at the theatre very soon.


Mark Goucher, Chief Executive
