Car Park Panto Comes To Harrogate On New Year's Eve

Since the first announcement of Car Park Panto there has been a flurry of media attention around the unique idea of staging one of the most beloved family festive highlights in a car park. The public loved the idea also, snapping up tickets within a matter of hours leading to a complete sold-out run.

Due to the phenomenal demand from Yorkshire, Car Park Panto in partnership with the Birmingham Stage Company and Horrible Histories, are announcing a special New Year's Eve show with two amazing performances of HORRIBLE CHRISTMAS at Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate on 31st December.

Just when you thought your Christmas show had been cancelled, Horrible Histories comes to the rescue with their own unique take on the festive season. HORRIBLE CHRISTMAS is the story of how Christmas came to be what it is today, enabling families to enter into the festive spirit in a safe, socially distanced manner from the comfort of their own sleigh car!

When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young boy to save the day – but can he save Christmas? From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, join us on a hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and St Nicholas as they all join forces to save the festive season!

Performance times: 2pm & 5pm

Tickets & T&C’s are available at
