Southampton listings: 6 – 12 December

Where are this week’s listings?  “They’re behind you”. Well, no they’re not, actually, they’re on a link below but we’re getting into the spirit of things, with panto season officially upon us. Hiss, boo etc.

Meanwhile, the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton’s big panto, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, starring Jason Donovan, Faye Brooks, Sooty and Richard Cadell  opens on December 10 (click here for more, and again, look out for the review).
