Is it any wonder the response to Snow White at the Assembly Hall Theatre, Tunbridge Wells has been so positive? Take a look at Jamie Steen as Nursie in just one of many costume changes. The production values and attention to detail on this pantomime are so high. Don’t miss seeing the Assembly Hall’s best panto ever, playing Tunbridge Wells until 2nd January. Book tickets here.

A great new panto interview feature with Su (and Jamie Steen) is included in the Winter Issue print edition of Local Magazine.
When the Assembly hall Theatre team sat down for a cuppa with the legendary star Su Pollard and the King of Panto Jamie Steen we were understandably very excited and a little bit nervous. After all, it’s not every day you get to meet one of your TV heroes and a panto institution!
We spoke to Su first, who will be playing the Wicked Queen in this year’s fantastic family pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs…
Q: Hello Su, this year you’re playing the Wicked Queen – should we expect an all-out villain or does she have a secret bit of goodness in her heart?
She’s definitely evil. After all, she is called the Wicked Queen, but she is also mischievious and loves to flirt with the Prince. I like her to have a mix of everything.
Q: You came to Tunbridge Wells for the press launch of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. What was your impression of the town and its people?
It offers a very flavoursome atmosphere because of all its lovely cafes and almost village-like quality. The people are extremely welcoming.
