The snow falls just added to the magic at the Lodore Falls Hotel when over 100 people packed in to see Aladdin.
Aladdin is the first pantomime performance ever held in the hotel. The panto was a complete sell out and the hotel “theatre” was buzzing with a very excited audience.
It couldn’t have been a more festive, winter wonderland location for the panto – snow on the fells, pretty Christmas lights and 70 sparking Christmas trees – the perfect backdrop for the performance.
Without doubt the family groups really enjoyed the panto, saying it was great to have some good family fun just before Christmas and the Blast off Burgers went down a treat in the interval. Visitors included nine members of the Hughes family from Keswick who thoroughly enjoyed the occasion – a special trip for Emelia who was eight next day.
Sophie Kings, Assistant Manager of the Lodore Falls Hotel part of the Lake District Hotels Ltd group and organiser of the panto said “We thought there was a need for some traditional panto fun this Christmas and I am thrilled so many people wanted to see it. Everyone agreed it was fantastically funny for adults and children alike and very engaging for the little ones who loved sitting on the silk cushions at the front. The kids were such an integral part of the performance and the feedback has been fantastic – seeing everyone laughing, shouting and clapping so much was utterly fabulous and we are already thinking of what we can do next year.”
