Jack and the Beanstalk (Hackney)

Jack and the Beanstalk (Hackney)

Postponed until November 2021.


This is due to the continued uncertainty of government guidelines on public performances and the likelihood of continued social distancing restrictions which make staging a pantomime financially unviable, while not eliminating risk for audiences and artists alike.


Pantomimes are long and expensive to plan and produce, monopolising the minds, efforts and generosity of hundreds of people in the process. Writers, directors, composers and performers, designers, builders, technicians and stage managers, box office and front of house staff, the list goes on and despite potential government funding for some – to be confirmed at a later date – the numbers just don’t add up while all the uncertainty remains.

Covid-19 Please check with the organiser that this event is going ahead.
