Cinderella will be running throughout December 2022 and a magical star cast has been announced with the judge everyone loves to hate, Craig Revel Horwood, starring as the Wicked Stepmother.

Joining the fab-u-lous Craig Revel Horwood will be Bristol panto favourite Andy Ford (The Royal Variety Performance) as Buttons, marking his tenth pantomime appearance at the Bristol Hippodrome, alongside popular musical theatre and cabaret artist Alison Jiear (Britain’s Got Talent) as the Fairy Godmother.
