This Christmas you shall go to the Ball as the most magical of pantomimes comes to Hackney Empire!

The classic rags to riches tale of Cinderella will be told in true Hackney style by our award winning pantomime team as they prove a new pair of shoes really can change your life.

Cheer on our spirited heroine as she searches for love in spite of the exploits of her hideous Ugly Sisters and evil Stepmother, throw in a pair of singing mice, a magical Fairy Godmother, the sparkle of glass slippers with glittering sets, big song and dance numbers, slapstick comedy and a flying horse and you have the perfect Christmas family treat for the festive season.

So don’t delay, dust off your best frock and book your tickets today – it takes the Ugly Sisters a whole year to get ready for a big night!
