THE PARKING LOT PANTO
You thought the annual panto was cancelled this year didn’t you? Oh no it’s not! Cheer, boo and hiss along with the family as we bring you a professionally produced live production of Cinderella. Broadcast across two massive screens, there’s not a bad seat in the house with the stage and cast visible from all spaces.
