It’s summer, it’s hot, the kids have worn out all the new Xmas toys and you in the bargain. They’ve seen every movie, used up all their phone credit and they are starting the litany of “I’m boreds”.
You could do a lot worse than introduce them to a good old fashioned panto – a huge dollop of fun, farce and fantasy where they get to laugh, boo, hiss and shout out things in their normal outside voices .
