The National Database of Pantomime Performance was launched on 2nd December 2013, made possible due to a generous grant from the Society for Theatre Research.

The aims of the National Database of Pantomime Performance include:

  • To list every professional pantomime occurring in the UK each season.
  • To provide key production information about these pantomimes in the form of casts, creatives, titles, production images, etc.
  • To provide profile information about each theatre and pantomime company producing a show.
  • To be a rich pantomime resource for industry, media, scholars, pantomime enthusiasts and the general public.
  • To be the one-stop shop for potential pantomime ticket purchases, with click through links to theatres’ booking pages.
  • To be free of charge, fully searchable and easy to use.
