“This immersive Christmas show is rip-roaringly alive. The storytelling is but the centrepiece of an experience full of fabulously bad taste jokes, copious amounts of alcohol and raucous singalongs to Bohemian Rhapsody and Voulez-Vous. It has heart.”


This unique twist on the Cinderella story sees all the characters you know, love and hate colliding in a local boozer, where the audience are welcomed to the heart of the action to witness pints spilled, mates pulled and hearts poured out on the karaoke.

Crammed with live music, mayhem and a touch of midnight magic, Cinderella will have you dancing in the aisles and laughing your baubles off. Think The Royle Family meets Elf, in a bespoke pub theatre within The Vaults complex beneath Waterloo station.

Award-winning theatre company Not Too Tame have teamed up with top theatre and TV writer Luke Barnes for this acclaimed new version of the classic Cinderella story, which premiered to rave reviews on a national tour last year.

So, get your mistletoe out, buy a drink from the on-stage bar, and shake your tinsel for some spectacular festive entertainment, because Cinderella is coming to town.

Age Recommendation: 12+

Critic reviews

Brassy, boozy re-imagining of a classic tale is cheerful enough but unlikely to convert panto-sceptics

The Stage

More of an experience than a show, and it's well worth a look if you want something grungy, silly and unconventional


It is mad, lively fun – an evening where the plot is secondary to just everyone having a good time and would be all the better for a few beers before it starts

West End Wilma

If you like ego battering audience participation with humour that is dark and very adult, and your show served with a side of warm white wine, then this is the adult Panto for you

London Box Office

Luke Barnes' story is a hoot from start to finish

Broadway World

It is light-hearted and energetic but does little to convince us we are getting a golden carriage of an evening rather than a pumpkin with a smattering of glitter
