The best way to the panto is by bus... oh, yes it is!

Forget those winter blues and warm up your vocal chords for those all-important ‘boos’ – it’s pantomime season! Salisbury Reds are proud to be official travel partner of Beauty and the Beast – the spellbinding pantomime appearing at Salisbury Playhouse this Christmas and New Year.

This famous fairytale follows the story of Amorette who is taken prisoner by a prince who has been turned into a Beast. Eventually she grows to love the Beast, thus lifting a curse and turning him back into a prince. 

Written by Andrew Pollard, directed by Ryan McBryde and designed by James Button (the team behind last year’s record-breaking Jack and the Beanstalk), Beauty and the Beast will include all the traditional elements of pantomime – comedy, song, dance, beautiful sets and costumes and plenty of audience participation. 

Running from 1st December 2018 to 13th January 2019, the annual trip to the Playhouse pantomime has become an important part of Christmas celebrations for families, schools and groups, with many performances selling out. To accommodate demand, Beauty and the Beast will run for an extra week until 13 January.

With regular bus services serving Salisbury city centre only a stone’s throw away, beat the Christmas traffic, hop on a bus and let our reliable buses take you to the panto magic this festive season.
