This Christmas Julian Clary will take us on a magical trip to Pantoland at The Palladium. Performances will begin at the world-famous theatre on 12th December 2020 running until 3rd January 2021, with tickets on sale from 10am today.
The London Palladium, the home of pantomime, will welcome back panto favourites Paul Zerdin, Nigel Havers and Gary Wilmot, as well as past stars Ashley Banjo & Diversity and Charlie Stemp. Making their debut will be West End sensations Beverley Knight and Jac Yarrow.
Returning for a fifth consecutive year, The London Palladium pantomime has become an essential part of Christmas in the West End, with record-breaking box office success year-after-year. Pantoland at The Palladium, devised by Michael Harrison, will be a treasure-trove of The London Palladium panto past and exciting new surprises written especially for the show, guaranteeing an unmissable treat for panto and musical theatre fans alike.
Celebrating the very best of pantomime, with comedy in abundance, this star-filled extravaganza will play to a socially-distanced audience. The show will feature the work of Olivier Award-Winning Team director Michael Harrison, choreographer Karen Bruce, set designer Ian Westbrook, costume designer Hugh Durrant, lighting designer Ben Cracknell, sound designer Gareth Owen and composer and orchestrator Gary Hind.
One of the most distinctive comics in the early days of alternative comedy, then an 'overnight success' through his iconoclastic Channel 4 game show Sticky Moments, Julian Clary has spent 30 years in show business dividing his time between radio and television, films and stage as an actor, entertainer, presenter and writer. Although he claims nowadays to enjoy the life of a country gentleman in his 16th century farmhouse, he can't resist the lure of live performance. Of course, expects a warm hand on his arrival... Ooh, naughty! 'Lots of camp smut and double entendres... doesn't disappoint... he was side-splittingly hilarious' (Daily Mirror) 'His persona of camp superciliousness is effortlessly amusing... Clary's genius is to find sexual suggestion where the rest of us wouldn't think of looking' (The Guardian) 'The audience – gay, straight, young, old – loved Clary and it was easy to see why' (Evening Standard).

'Paul Zerdin is in a league of his own'(Time Out) 'If you thought the words brilliant and ventriloquist could not exist in the same sentence, go and see Paul Zerdin for some brutal re-education' (Evening Standard) 'Technically immaculate, it's what he does with his slick talent that really sets him apart. His relationship with the characters has all the dramatic tension of a real life double act' (The Guardian) 'Paul Zerdin's ventriloquist act is a fun, mind scrambling experience' (The Daily Telegraph).
