Summer Panto Is Here!

In News by Paula Hammond - Features Editor

This summer’s swashbuckling, family friendly, panto event takes place from 13th to 21st August at the Lodmoor Palladium, in association with We Are Weymouth.  Guests can take in the show from comfortable theatre seats in the brand new 34m wide, state of the art, tiered palladium.  As well as the action-packed panto, there are outdoor activities on site designed for the young pirates in our lives!  With ‘Dig For Gold’, ‘Hook Hoopla’ and ‘Pin the Eyepatch on the Pirate’ INCLUDED in the ticket price. The kids will be entertained for the whole day, offering a great alternative day out to the beach.  There’s even a chance to get dressed up and snap-a-selfie at the ‘Pirate Selfie Station’ and enjoy food and drinks in ‘The Galley’ throughout the day and maybe pop over to the Pirate golf after the show.

Lee Redwood, panto producer and writer at Made to Measure Productions comments: “We’re really grateful for this funding from We Are Weymouth. Pirates Ahoy! is a family-friendly event which we hope will attract visitors from both Weymouth and further afield for a day out in the summer holidays.  We’re excited for the Lodmoor Palladium to become a fantastic temporary venue for the town of Weymouth, hosting a range of shows and live events as well as our Pirate event.  We have a history of creating bespoke shows for Weymouth and our run at the Lodmoor Palladium takes this to the next level.  We Are Weymouth has helped us to get there.”   

Lodmoor Palladium will be open from Saturday 13th August 2022 until Sunday 21st August 2022 with twice daily Pirates Ahoy! performances and varying evening performances.
