FACTS

Augustus Harris, often called "Father of modern Pantomime" staged shows at the Drury Lane Theatre in London in the 1870’s

Francis Laidler took on the mantle "King of Pantomimes" in the 1930’s, producing shows at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford, which were then presented all over the country

In the 1950’s and 1960’s the Pantomime crown rested upon the head of Derek Salberg, who created pantomimes from the Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham
