The return of panto to the Lyceum Theatre after last year’s show was cancelled by the pandemic has delighted thousands of happy Sheffielders. They have enjoyed seeing the antics of Dame Damian Williams, back in his 13th Lyceum show, and the cast of Sleeping Beauty. Comedian Bobby Knutt was another long-time Sheffield panto favourite, appearing at both the Crucible and the Lyceum.

The Manor Operatic show at Sheffield City Hall is another firm favourite – this year’s show Snow White starts its run on December 27. The late Brian Platts was a much-loved Manor Operatic Dame and the current cast are following in his footsteps.
