**Urgent update from Loddon Players**

It is with regret, that despite the best efforts of the Loddon Players to continue in tradition and to offer the community the January Pantomime to look forward to, it has become evident that it would not be wise to continue with these plans and that we should Postpone the Pantomime until the Spring.

A tremendous effort was taking place in planning this Pantomime to keep everyone safe now that we are all living with Covid in our lives. Things were being done differently with a change of venue, changes to the way rehearsals were conducted and generally the emphasis on a Pantomime that could be enjoyed but also suitable for the current situation we are all living in.

Unfortunately, the Covid Pandemic has been an ever changing one and has now changed again with a new variant that needs to be treated with the caution it deserves. The main priority with all the plans so far had been to be 100% ‘Covid Safe’ as we could possibly be but with the new variant and restrictions, we now feel that it would not be prudent to continue at this time.

This is just a Postponement - We will be back - Oh yes we will!

Look out for the Notification of the new performance dates - a ‘Pantomime in the Spring’ could be a unique experience!

Our apologies to everyone, who had begun to look forward to the January performances, it is not what we had hoped for, but please look forward to when we can present you with yet another great Pantomime!


Come and join us at the Alston Theatre, Langley School NR14 6BJ* for an afternoon/evening of Panto entertainment.
