Panto Memories Tour Scotland

By | Category: Travel rumblings

Pantos will be full to bursting this season say the theatres. It’s their time of the year when a good panto will help them ride out the next eleven months till the next one arrives (and my two local theatres have already told me what the pantos will be for 2009/10!)
I’be been a fan for years and even though my kids are in the twenties, I will still go and jeer and boo and hiss with the best of the ten year olds.
This year, the University of Glasgow has created an exhibition celebrating Scottish pantos. It has already been to Edinburgh, Perth and St. Andrews and last night it opened at Her Majesty’s in Aberdeen before it goes to the Eden Cout theatre in Inverness for a week.
A touring exhibition will cover the east of Scotland next year.
This project has been funded by a £525,000 grant to the university for a three year study into all aspects of panto in Scotland. It would be nice if it came to England and other parts as well because such an exhibition might encourage youngsters to visit museums more.
There you have it. The last blog before Christmas and not one panto joke. You can add your own!
All I will say is enjoy Christmas tomorrow and for all of you have a peaceful new year wherever you may or may not be travelling to for the holidays.
