SEEN is always on the lookout for a good Panto, so imagine our delight when we learned that the unmissable shining star in the North London Christmas season, Charles Court Opera are back at the King’s Head Theatre with their latest dazzling offering of boutique panto, Pinocchio, on for a limited season only: 1st December 2016 – 7th January 2017.

Sporting the same stellar creative team as last year’s critically acclaimed Mirror Mirror! and a brilliant cast singing a dazzling array of musical numbers, CCO’s highly original take on this classic tale of the wooden puppet who wants to be a real boy is jam-packed full of belly laughs, silliness and downright ridiculousness.

SEEN expects the utterly unexpected; a musically exhilarating, uproarious and quite frankly ludicrous show, with innuendo, puns and tomfoolery galore, all sprinkled with a handful of Christmas spirit and festive fun. With fabulous musical numbers from a wide range of genres and a story that is full of cheeky twists and turns, this is truly not to be missed.

John Savournin, Artistic Director of Charles Court Opera, says ‘We’re delighted to be back at the King’s Head Theatre for our tenth boutique panto. ‘Pinocchio’ is brimming with imagination, and we’ve been hard at work cooking up more fun and frivolity than ever before for our take on the classic tale.  We’re very excited!’

From adult-only performances through to children’s matinees, Pinocchio is set to be a Christmas cracker for everyone.

The King’s Head Theatre is London’s first and foremost pub theatre and is led by Artistic Director, Adam Spreadbury-Maher. New writing, revivals, musicals, opera, cabaret and queer work sit side by side in an unashamedly eclectic programme of work. In short, the very best of London Fringe Theatre.

Sagardi: Pleasures of the Flesh

SEEN was reminded of what a privilege it is to meet chefs and butchers who are truly passionate and single-minded about the food they prepare and cook. Thus it was at Sagardi in Shoreditch, where the ravenous foodie press was assembled earlier this week, to witness the butchery of, and subsequent cooking over a splendid barbecue grill, of a side of ox.
