Unfortunately I didn't get to Bristol in person this year, just via satellite, but here is an old photo of meeting Panto Royalty! Mr FFE Script Writer and Dame Extraordinaire....

The wonderful Eric Potts.

This year I have been very fortunate to have been invited backstage / out for drinks after a number of the shows.

For me it is genuinely a real privilege to spend time  with the actors and actress' who work so hard entertaining me.

I have met some real Pantomime Hero's of mine this year, and most importantly, I hope made some new friends.

What makes it so much nicer, is when the people you meet are genuinely nice people. Thankfully, everyone I have met this year falls into that category.

So, apologies if I forget anyone but ..... IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER !
