Theatre lovers, look no further! With Christmas fast approaching, The Yvonne Arnaud theatre is just the place to indulge in Cinderella - the original rags to riches tale. It is the godmother of all pantos, full of slapstick and slosh, music and magic. This year the pantomime stars EastEnders and Detectorists favourite Lucy Benjamin as the Wicked Stepmother and Radio's Peter Gordon (returning for his 18th year!), in a hilarious Ugly Stepsister duo alongside Guildford Shakespeare Company co-founder Matt Pinches.
