Loughborough Town Hall has announced it is renewing its partnership with multi award-winning theatre producers Little Wolf Entertainment, to present the venue’s annual pantomime.

The producers, who have created the last eight pantomime seasons at the Leicestershire venue, have developed a nationally recognised reputation for setting the standard in regional pantomime. This has led to success within the Best Dame and Best Newcomer categories in The Great British Pantomime Awards, alongside regular nominations in the Pantomime of the Year category.

This new contract with the venue’s owners and operators Charnwood Borough Council, will see Little Wolf Entertainment excite audiences for another three years.

They kick off with the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty, opening this November for an action-packed six week run.

Last year’s production of Aladdin was seen by over 27,500 people, following high levels of audience and critical acclaim and marked the first pantomime at the venue since the start of the pandemic.

Cllr Jenny Bokor, the Council’s lead member for Loughborough, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with Little Wolf Entertainment, after eight years of successful productions and five-star critical reviews.

“Their shows provide that perfect balance of fantastic humour, originality, high production values and an adventure that continues to make pantomime at Town Hall a must-see for audiences of all ages, across Leicestershire and beyond each and every year.”

“Throughout this process, the quality of production was a key criteria in our assessments and we remain as confident as ever that Little Wolf will continue to deliver the quality and attention to detail that audiences have come to expect and love.”

Alan Bowles and Morgan Brind, Co-Producers for Little Wolf Entertainment, said “We are extremely proud of the reputation of our Loughborough pantomime, which has been so well received over the last eight years by critics and audiences alike. Our recent production of Aladdin marked the joyous return of live theatre, and we are delighted the council have once again shown their clear commitment to bringing the very best in family entertainment to the fabulous Loughborough Town Hall for many years to come.

“Plans are already well under way for our spectacular Sleeping Beauty later this year. It is going to be an action-packed adventure, full of everything you’ve come to expect from a Little Wolf Pantomime, and we can’t wait to share it with the loyal Loughborough audiences”.

Tickets for Sleeping Beauty, running from 19th November 2022 – 2nd January 2023, are now on sale, with special Early Bird prices for purchases made before 31st March 2022.
