All customers with tickets to Cinderella will be contacted soon to move to the new dates in 2021-22.

Michael Ockwell, Mayflower Theatre chief executive said, “With the current government guidance still unclear on when venues can open without social distancing in place and the latest announcement that no decision will be made until November, we have decided with our pantomime partner Qdos Entertainment to postpone the production of Cinderella until Christmas 2021.

“We will contact customers directly in due course to move their bookings on a year. We do not want Christmas to be cancelled for our customers completely so we are working with our producing partner to hopefully present some alternative magical entertainment this Christmas if possible – watch this space!”

Mayflower Theatre asks customers not to contact the theatre but to wait until they are contacted.
