The Woking based theatre is set to stage the socially distanced pantomime of Robin Hood from the 18th December until the 10th January.

It has been announced that Craig Revel Horwood is set to return to the New Victoria Theatre in Woking to star in the socially distanced production of Robin Hood from the 18th December.

With support from the National Lottery, this pantomime will see the Strictly Come Dancing judge return to the theatre following on from his appearance in Cinderella in 2018.

Joining him in the production will be Matt Slack and  Richard Cadell & Sooty.

With tickets on sale now, they are available in a variety of bubble sizes safely socially distanced from other patrons, so customers can enjoy the show, safely.

It was also announced that as a thank you to Woking’s  NHS staff, Ambassador Theatre Group are pleased to announce they’ll be gifting all tickets to the evening performance on Tuesday 5th January to the NHS and their families.

Talking about the news, Simon Thomsett, Theatre Director at New Victoria Theatre said “We’re thrilled to be working again with Qdos Entertainment and to be able to open our doors and offer some festive fun – oh yes we are!  Huge thanks must also go to The National Lottery for supporting us and making it possible for us to bring some much needed cheer to our lovely audiences who we haven’t seen enough of this year.We wouldn’t have been able to reach this point without all the selfless work from the NHS over the year, so as a thank you, NHS staff can enter a ballot for free tickets to bring their families to Robin Hood by visiting healthservicediscounts.com. We can’t wait to safely entertain our fabulous audiences at both the New Victoria Theatre and the Nova Cinema this festive season.”

Meanwhile, the previously confirmed production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be staged in 2021 and existing bookers have already been contacted with details of their new tickets.
