THIS year’s production of Sleeping Beauty at The Octagon Theatre proved to be a dream of a panto - smashing Box Office records for the fourth consecutive year.

Over 27,000 people attended the show, the the first time in The Octagon’s history that such a number of people have attended any one production.

Adam Burgan, arts and entertainment manager of The Octagon Theatre said: ‘We were delighted to once again smash our Box Office record and welcome over 27,000 people from across the region. We were thrilled with the feedback from audiences who loved the show. With our growing reputation for one of the best pantomimes in the South West we felt very proud of the show this year and would like to thank everyone who has supported us and made it such a huge success."
