Happy New Year!! From all of us here at The Iron Room, we would like to wish you all a very peaceful and prosperous New Year.
The festive holiday may be nearing its end, but traditionally the theatre will still be busy performing pantomimes up until the end of January to the delights of children everywhere (young and older!).The tradition of theatrical performances over the Christmas period is decades old. The Theatre Royal in Birmingham was performing pantomimes at least as far back as 1840-41 with Harlequin and the Knight of the Silver Medal, with a performance of The Dragon of Wantley in 1844. So if you are still feeling festive, why not see if there is a pantomime near you!
Happy New Year!
