The cast of Pinocchio at The Pavilion

There's no better way to get into the spirit of the festival season than by going to see one of the many pantomimes (oh no, there isn't).

Across Glasgow and the west of Scotland there's a huge variety of shows on offer, from the classic well-loved fairytales of Aladdin, Pinocchio and Jack the Beanstalk to original and adapted stories.

You can also catch stars including Karen Dunbar, John Barrowman, the Krankies and Evening Times columnist Michelle McManus, along with a cast of pantomime dames, princesses, wicked witches, good fairies and flying carpets, all putting on a show to entertain the whole family.
