Nothing is more exciting at Christmas than a family trip to the theatre for the classic festive panto.
This year, dozens of venues have already announced they will be cancelling their annual December show due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But families in Gloucestershire will not have to go without, because the world’s first drive-in Christmas panto is coming Cheltenham Racecourse.
There will be two performances of Horrible Christmas at the venue on December 21, and it’s going to exceptionally popular.

From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, the show promises to be a hair-raising adventure.
Horrible Histories Actor/Manager Neal Foster (Birmingham Stage Company)said: “ As you’d expect from Horrible Histories, it’s not a traditional pantomime, but a journey through the story of Christmas in the company of the season’s most fabulous characters.
“It’s the perfect story for families this winter, as one young boy battles to save Christmas for the world, in this hilarious, joyous and moving celebration.”
Performance times are 2pm and 5pm.
