The trees are losing their leaves, the weather is getting colder and days are getting darker, which can only mean one thing – Panto season is nearly upon us. Nothing says winter is here more than cold, crisp mornings and the build up to panto season!

Preparations are well underway at The Riverfront and the excitement in the building is infectious. Day by day the theatre is being transformed into the home of Robin Hood and it’s feeling more magical by the minute. Take a look at what’s changed.

As you enter the building you are welcomed by four cast members, just don’t be put off by the Sheriff.

The foyer is filled with the Riverfront team who have joined Robin’s team of merry men and are suited and booted ready for the run. If you’re envious of the fashion statement of the season, the hat, don’t worry as they’ll be available to purchase during the shows.

Of course, we mustn’t forget the essential photo opportunity for the ‘gram’ (Instagram)! You can step inside the forest and update your followers on your visit to the must-see pantomime of the year. If you want to be really clever you could save your BeReal for your visit (one for the youngsters).

This year’s Robin Hood pantomime is the perfect family experience to get you in the festive mood. If you haven’t booked your tickets yet, head to Newport Live’s website: HERE or contact The Riverfront Box Office on: 01633 656757.
