Robin Hood description

The legend of Robin Hood dates back more than 500 years. It has been made into more than 50 films and TV series. Now it’s on stage at the London Palladium, the venue’s festive panto for 2024, and it’s going to be amazing.

Join Robin and his Merry Men in a Palladium Pantomime to fall in love with. This is the 9th festive panto season at the venue and a brand new production of Robin Hood, fresh from the creative team responsible for the event over the past eight years.

The result is a West End spectacle to remember, with stunning sets and costumes, laugh-out-loud comedy and awesome special effects enhanced by dramatic pyrotechnics, loud and sudden noises, strobe and flashing lights, theatrical fog and haze. Marvellous!

National treasures, West End stars and panto royalty

Starring national treasure Jane McDonald as Maid Marion and Palladium Panto royalty Julian Clary as Robin Hood, theatreland favourites Paul Zerdin (Muppet Treasure Island), Nigel Havers (Private Lives), Charlie Stemp (Kiss Me Kate, Crazy for You) and Rob Madge (My Son’s A Queer - But What Can You Do?) also join the cast. West End stars Marisha Wallace (Celebrity Big Brother, Guys & Dolls, Dream Girls) and Tosh Wanogho-Maud (The Drifters Girl) will both make their Palladium Panto debuts.

The creative team is also stuffed with West End talent: the production has set design by Mark Walters, costumes by Hugh Durrant, choreography by Karen Bruce, visual special effects by The Twins FX, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound by Matt Peploe for Gareth Owen Sound, and composition and orchestrations by Gary Hind. Michael Harrison, who always directs and produces the annual Palladium Panto for Crossroads Pantomimes, is back again to create the magic.

An ancient story brought to sparkling life

Times were incredibly tough for the poor and the ordinary people of the 1300s, when the legend of Robin Hood probably first emerged. The gentry, aristocracy, politicians and landowners treated us like we were dirt, and out of our suffering and struggles a legendary hero was born.

There’s no proof Robin Hood or his Merry Men ever existed and the original tales, plays and ballads were set in South Yorkshire rather than Nottinghamshire, but the story still resonates just as strongly today. The fabled hero who robbed the rich and gave the proceeds to the poor, who treated ordinary folk with such respect and kindness, lives on. And this panto is going to be HUGE fun!
