This is one for the full-on pantomime lovers. It’s one for the shouters and boo-ers, and those with the giggliest belly laughs and the loudest cheers. Because the lastminute.com London Eye is running a panto inside one of their observation pods, treating VIP ticket holders to a virtually private 25-minute performance of Dick Whittington. No need to head to the theatre to get your panto fix – just head to the Christmas Panto Pods!
It’s a pretty exclusive little event, with only one of the 32 observational pods playing host to the experience. But if you’re lucky enough to grab a ticket you can grab your (velvet) seat in front of the mini stage for an unforgettable theatrical experience. The mini performances of Dick Whittington will run from December 14-18, thrice a day. Guests will go on a theatrical journey through London with Dick Whittington and his cat as they grow their riches, spread kindness, and find success in the city. As part of the experience you also get to skip the queue when you arrive. Who doesn’t love a bit of VIP treatment?
Said Imran Tauqir, General Manager at the lastminute.com London Eye:
“Nothing quite says Christmas like a trip to a great British panto, so we’re thrilled to be teaming up with the Phoenix Arts Club to offer our guests the chance to watch a magical pantomime performance as they soar across the London skyline! With the Panto Pod opening the week before Christmas, it’s the perfect way to get in the festive spirit.”
