pantomime flop for 'Sleeping Beauty'
Photographs by Ian
AS the festive season
took hold it opened up the start of Panto Season, but the
festive cheer for one Panto was to be cut short by what has been
'a true life pantomime' as one of the cast said. The
pantomime, as you can see in our photos, had seemed set to be
very good, with a high standard of scripts, costumes and many
well know faces in the cast, but the real life pantomime started
before it opened. The play had already been hit with
cancellations blamed on ongoing technical issues which delayed
completion of the Christmas Festival site, next to the Liverpool
Arena, and now the play and the festival have been cancelled!
ACC Liverpool, on 24 December 2012, were informed by the
Directors of Core Promotions Ltd, promoters of the Liverpool
Christmas Family Festival and Sleeping Beauty pantomime, that
Core Promotions Ltd. has ceased trading. So since Christmas all
further performances of Sleeping Beauty at The Liverpool
Waterfront Big Top have been cancelled and the Liverpool
Christmas Family Festival site was closed with immediate effect.
Liverpool ACC said: - "All customers who purchased tickets
by credit/debit card will receive an automatic refund. A refund
will be credited to the card that was used to purchase the
tickets. All customers who purchased tickets by cash should
contact their point of purchase to receive a cash refund. The

We have also been told by people connected to the show that that
some of the panto cast still have not been paid nor have some of
the crew and the support workers. This has yet to be fully
confirmed, but if you have been affected, please do let us know.
