Goldilocks and the Three Bears pantomime to run at the London Palladium this Christmas

All-new London Palladium pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears, which marks the venue's fourth consecutive Christmas panto, is set to open for previews in London's West End on 7 December 2019. The highly-anticipated show will run until 12 January 2020 and comes after the Palladium's highly successful, sell-out run of the Snow White pantomime last year. Tickets for the Goldilocks pantomime at the London Palladium are expected to be in high demand.
