Took my son, his friend and my niece and we sat in the “Royal Box” it was fantastic. We laughed our socks off. Especially when Pinocchio’s friend ended up beside us when he was shot from the cannon! My son says that’s the only seat he’s sitting in next time!

Saw the show on Tuesday, I really enjoyed it, but didn’t quite reach the mark Cinderella did last year, but it was still a very enjoyable evening, was crying with laughter during 12 Days Of Christmas Sequence, cannot wait to see what next years choice is :)

Took the kids to the panto and they absolutely loved it. Haven’t been to a panto for years and the cast certainly did not disappoint us. So much so the kids have asked to go back again they liked it that much. Well done guys you were brilliant

Hadn’t been to a pavilion panto in a number of years mainly because of nicola park starring on the show. No offence to her but she really wasn’t my families cup of tea so we decided to go elsewhere for the last few years, which weren’t the best either, we stayed at home last year and put our family tradition on hold. However last night we decided to have a fu day out in town then went along to the night time Pinnochio performance. Wow, we were ALL blown away, even the kids. We laughed from start to finish. Stephen Purdon was great as always and it was great to see him alongside Angus, it really made it special. This was our first time seeing Grado perform and thought he was absolutely hilarious, the connection he had with the crowd was priceless, but I do think Liam Dolan stole the show with his comedy routine even if a few in our party couldn’t keep up with the pace of the jokes!! The dancers were tremendous and the person playing Stromboli was a funny and great BADDY. Overall it’s a wonderful show would recommend to any family before week..just hoping it’s a similar cast next year! And the 8 (if we are all still living ha ha) will be there 5 stars!!!!!

10 of us, four generations of family aged 6 to 80yrs went to the show today. We all loved it. The cast were superb. The ad libs/mistakes made the show particularly scottish. The dancers were great. Specially the two young men. Athletic and creative. I was engaged by a young couple in front of me who had brought their tiny daughter, maybe 8 months old. She was bouncing to the music and smiling the whole show. Great job folks.

Just arrived home from yet another fantastic pantomime at the pavilion, we've been going on 2nd January for years and one show is better than another, tonight's show has been my absolute favourite by far, everyone involved made the show absolutely fantastic, as usual Stephen purdon was brilliant but i must say Scott Fletcher was my favourite ,when he opened the show singing and dancing I was really impressed by his singing voice, hope to see him in more shows in the future, Thankyou all i had a great night laughed from beginning till the end. See you all next year 2/1/21
Anne wylie

What a fantastic night Scott Fletcher and Stephen Purdon took time to chat to us at their break time. My grandson got a photo with Scott what a lovely person, yes the cast really worked hard to make it fun for us all. Well done all and thank you.
Elizabeth Macdonald
Myself my 6year old and my 19 week old had an absolutely fabulous time tonight such a good laugh my daughter went with her school and had a ball so I decided to take her back and I also loved it. As for my baby being there I was unaware of the baby in arms policy so sorry to anyone that was annoyed by her being there she also watched the full show and for being so young you could see she enjoyed the show she was wide awake and making lots of noises she cried once but quickly stopped as I dealt with her straight way and it was more during the brake as there was nothing to watch.
Lornne Wood

Annemarie tees
We attended Pinocchio in a family group consisting of gran, mum and 2 kids. The show was a concoction of colour, music, magic tricks, acrobatics, dancing, comedy and special effects, without giving too much away. The star of the show Pinocchio is a loveable rogue who is full of the Glasgow banter, he and his Papa Geppetto make an amusing double act. Along with their friends the Blue Fairy, Jiminy Cricket and Lampwick they set out the defeat the baddies with some unexpected adventures along the way. Gran’s favourite bits were the dancers who gave full energy to every performance and were very talented. The kids favourite parts were the acrobatics and special effects. Mum’s favourite bits were the slapstick comedy and Glasgow banter. Well done to all the team for another fantastic show!
The GALLAGHER family
Went to see the show last night with my daughter and granddaughters, what a night absolutely fantastic best Panto I’ve been to in a few years. From start to finish excellent cast dancers special effects, money very well spent, might even go back in January x
Carole mcmillan
Loved this new panto Pinocchio, fresh to the Pavillion. Costumes sparkled, cast super sparkled, a family delight. Jiminy Cricket (Liam Dolan) set the ball rolling and cast the audience under his spell with whistles, jokes and jolly brolley singing and dancing. The hard working Papa and Pinocchio charmed everyone and all in all this panto has gone up a gear in costumes, speciality acts, laughter and good clean family fun. Must mention "Laura" a kindly member of staff who rescued an elderly lady by tying her boot laces for her so she could walk safely back to her seat. Laura you too are a star, Thank you.
Ann Millar
Can you please pass on my thanks to scott fletcher and stephen purdon for taking the time last night for a photo with my grandson and my daughters friends and work mates it was my grandsons 12th birthday yesterday and every year for the past 10 years they have went to the pantomime at this time. sadly this year baileys mum passed away 6 weeks ago and my daughters friends asked if I would take bailey in her place and thou it was hard for me it was worthwhile to see him laugh and dance along with everyone and to get a photo at the end of the night made it more special for us all so thank you was again.
Margaret Odell

Jennifer Nicholson
What a night absolutely loved Pinocchio. We laughed so much as the cast where fantastic and so funny. The light up wristband’s and lanyards are a brilliant idea, my little one and her friend where fascinated by them and loved that they interacted with the show. Grado and Stephen Purdon steal the show with their performances, they are absolutely fab. My daughter just love’s Grado....(“It’s yerself!”) Well done Pavillion another outstanding panto!
