Panto postponed at Rhyl Pavilion until 2021, as over 98% of shows at Rhyl Pavilion rescheduled
The annual festive pantomime at Rhyl Pavilion Theatre has been postponed until 2021 due to Covid-19.
After 23 years of performing in Rhyl, the pantomime is being postponed until Christmas 2021 to ensure the safety of staff and customers.
Producer Martin Dodd said “This would have been our 23rd year of producing the Pavilion Theatre Christmas Pantomime and it is with deep sadness that we are having to make the decision to postpone Cinderella until next year. I know what a central part the pantomime plays in so many families Christmas’s, and we are always so grateful that so many turn out year after year to support this amazing theatre and our Christmas show. However in the light of the prevailing conditions we do not feel that we will be able to safely provide the high quality production that everybody has come to love and expect and we would be doing everyone a disservice if we had to scale it back. Regrettably, therefore together with Denbighshire Leisure we have had to come to this decision. However we will be back next year? …oh yes we will! ……and we very much look forward to seeing you all again.”
The decision to postpone the panto has been made jointly between UK Productions and Denbighshire Leisure Ltd.
Jamie Groves, Managing Director of Denbighshire Leisure Ltd, said: “At Denbighshire Leisure Ltd, the safety of our staff and customers is paramount and we will not compromise on the exceptional experience that our customers have come to expect from us across all of our sites. In the absence of any imminent or updated guidance, due to the preparation time required for the panto and the risk of incurring significant financial loss, we have no option but to postpone. We are pleased to announce that 98% of all shows that were previously postponed in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic have been rescheduled and are available to book. Despite the disappointment this year, we are determined to come back bigger and even stronger next year with some exciting new developments to look forward to at Rhyl Pavilion . When we have further guidance from the Welsh Government we will update our website and social pages with more information.”
Cinderella will be back at Rhyl Pavilion Theatre in 2021, tickets are available to be booked from 1st September at rhylpavilion.co.uk. As a special introductory offer, 2020 prices will be held until 31st December. More information on our 2021 programme will be added to our website and social media.

Covid-19 update – 15.07.2020
The most recent relaxation of lockdown restrictions by Welsh Government means that at long last we will be able to reopen some of our outdoor facilities. We are thrilled to announce that from next Monday (20th July 2020) we will be launching an exciting new outdoor fitness class programme, with over 40 classes across all Denbighshire Leisure sites. As we are all coming out of lockdown, it’s important to keep your mind and body healthy, and these classes will help towards this for our members and residents.
The food and drink kiosk in Rhyl Events Arena is open on Rhyl Promenade and has proved very popular, this will be followed by the outdoor Terrace Bar at SC2, serving a delicious range of food and drink, overlooking the panoramic views of Rhyl Beach.
Down the coast we also have our newly refurbished Beach Hut café and bar with outdoor takeaway at Nova launching next weekend, with an authentic rustic feel and far reaching views of the sandy beaches of Prestatyn and the North Wales coast. This will initially launch as a takeaway offer due to current Government guidelines, and it will evolve into a rustic indoor and outdoor eatery serving pizzas, build your own burgers and a range of delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
We are also getting ready to reopen our ATP and 3G pitches, we are making adjustments to our systems which will allow us to take bookings, with non-refundable deposits, from clubs who wish to secure their slots.
Denbighshire Leisure is back, Keep an eye on our social media and website over the coming days.
