Cancelled: Robin Hood Pantomime at Oxford Playhouse
27 November 2020 - 03 January 2021
07 October 2020 update:
It is with great sadness that Oxford Playhouse has announced that this year’s pantomime Robin Hood can unfortunately no longer go ahead, due to the ongoing restrictions around live performance during the Covid-19 crisis.
The Playhouse recognises that this news will be disappointing for its loyal panto audiences, and would like to thank them all for their ongoing support.
All Robin Hood panto bookers have been notified either by phone or email. If bookers have not received this notification, they should email the Ticket Office at email@example.com
Oxford Playhouse is humbly asking its panto bookers to consider either crediting their booking to next year’s pantomime or donating the cost of their tickets to the Playhouse Plays On Appeal, to help the theatre survive these extraordinary times. For those not in a position to do so, full refunds will also be available.

About the Oxford Playhouse
Oxford Playhouse is a theatre for everyone.
Oxford Playhouse was built as a repertory theatre in 1938; the last new theatre to be constructed before the war. Though highly valued locally and held in national regard, the Playhouse often had a precarious financial position, and eventually closed in 1987 due to a lack of funds to carry out essential modernisation. Directors’ Hedda Beeby and Tish Francis were appointed to re-open the theatre, which they managed to do in 1991 after a long fundraising campaign and major refurbishment.
Though no longer a repertory theatre, the Oxford Playhouse has gone from strength to strength. The Oxford Playhouse and its Burton Taylor Studio present and produce a wide and varied range of high-quality live programme including British and international drama, family shows, contemporary dance and music, student and amateur shows, comedy, lectures and poetry. The Playhouse also produces and tours its own shows, and hosts Artists in Residence.
