About a month or so ago we were kindly asked if we would like to see a pantomime at the Benn Hall in Rugby. We love a pantomime so of course said yes. We could pick any date we wanted from 23-29th December 2019 and we decided to choose Christmas Eve. We were a bit worried that it would be too much on the day as we always have a buffet with family at our house but we were so wrong. It was the best fun and we laughed so much. Afterwards we went home super happy and in the beat mood. We felt so Christmassy and have decided to make it a new tradition to see a pantomime at the Benn Hall. The pantomime we watched was Dick Whittington and we all loved it! Lots of jokes for the adults and lots of fun for the children. Before we went into the hall we were greeted with Santa and was able to have a photo which the boys loved
Then we walked in another room where there was a bar to order drinks and a long table of snacks and drinks that could be purchased to take in. We all got a drink each, some popcorn and chocolate.
It was in a hall rather than a traditional theatre so it was chairs laid out but it was surprisingly comfortable and we could see the stage wherever you sat as it was raised.
Before the show started and in the interval was a choir which really got us in the mood as it was so uplifting.
We really loved it and would 100% recommend. We will be booking again next year, which is Cinderella and will be performed by the same Five Star Theatre and a few special guests. If you’re near the area I would definitely suggest you go. 10/10
