It's back! The De Montfort Hall panto returns for Christmas 2013 - after a gap of almost 20 years.

Oh yes it is... come and enjoy a feast of spectacular scenery, costumes, music. magic - and panto mayhem.

Especially written for us by Leicester lass and Hackney Empire Artistic Director Susie McKenna, this is going to be a blast.

The panto will star Leicester's favourite Martin Ballard as one of the chinese policemen, Hardeep Singh Kohli as the Genie of the Lamp and star of Little Miss Jocelyn, Jocelyn Jee Esien as the Empress of China.

"Affectionate, clean, fast-moving, spectacular and bang up-to-date." The Stage read the full review here 

"Panto IS back. It's bright, it's fun, it's more affordable than its competitors in nearby cities and unless we want another two decades without this form of traditional, family entertainment, it deserves our support." Leicester Mercury read the full review here.
