 Oldham Coliseum Theatre has long been known for its excellent annual, traditional pantomime. Staged in a beautiful 525 seat theatre in the heart of Oldham, families come from miles around to see the Coliseum’s panto and experience the 135 year history.
This year’s pantomime is Cinderella and it’s running Saturday 10 November 2018 – Saturday 12 January 2019 and, as usual, it’s packed full of laugh-out-loud gags, thigh slapping songs.
