Gallery: Cinderella opening night

Published 15 December 2016

When seasonal pantomime returns to the London Palladium for the first time in nearly 30 years, and that pantomime is the most enchanting rags-to-riches tale of them all, the celebrations need to be suitably spectacular.

So a slap-up red carpet affair, graced by the glittering stardust of the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Cliff Richard, Gaby Roslin, Steve McFadden, Paul Merton, Des O’Connor, Tamsin Oathwaite, Adam Woodyatt, Christopher Biggins, Honey G and the kids cast from School Of Rock The Musical, was truly befitting of the lavish occasion.

The cast is led by Paul O’Grady (Baroness Hardup), Julian Clary (Dandini), Amanda Holden (The Fairy Godmother), Lee Mead (Prince Charming), Paul Zerdin (Buttons), Nigel Havers (Lord Chamberlain), Count Arthur Strong (Baron Hardup), Natasha J Barnes (Cinderella) and Suzie Chard and Wendy Somerville (The Wicked Stepsisters), and the cast took the chance to celebrate with their equally glamorous guests on an evening to remember.

With beautiful costumes, incredible scenery and some truly breath-taking moments, the production truly delivered on its promise of a glittering family extravaganza.

Qdos Entertainment’s production of Cinderella opened last night, Wednesday 14 December 2016, and runs over the Festive season, until Sunday 15 January 2017.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

Theatres are currently closed until 3 August. Some shows have cancelled or rescheduled performances beyond this date, please check with individual shows for details.
