What is it about pantomime that attracts us to this strange concoction of fairy tales, dance, jokes, songs and cross-dressing? And what is it really like to play the back end of a pantomime cow?
All this, and the answer to whether something really is behind you will be answered in this festive talk about what has become one of the great British Christmas traditions.

Pete has worked extensively as a professional theatre director and film-maker, including six years as Assistant Head Flyman at The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. He is currently the Director of The R.C. Sherriff Trust.
