Notice of Cancellation: Beauty and the Beast at Bedford Corn Exchange, December 2021

Published on 29 December 2021

A spokesperson for Rare Productions said, “We are very sad to announce that this year’s panto 'Beauty & The Beast', due to be performed at Bedford Corn Exchange, has had to be postponed.

“This is due to a number of suspected COVID-19 cases within the company and the necessity to keep our cast, crew and audience as safe as possible.

“We only postpone performances as a last resort. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment caused and we understand how frustrating this is for all."

"The panto will now be rescheduled for Christmas 2022.”

A Bedford Borough Council spokesperson said, “Despite robust and agreed safety measures in place, it is with regret that the decision has been taken by the Pantomime Company to cancel remaining performances of this year’s pantomime, Beauty and the Beast, due to a number of suspected cases of COVID-19 in the Pantomime Company. We support and endorse this sensible approach".

“All performances of Beauty and the Beast will be rescheduled for December 2022 and we will be in touch with all customers about the new dates. All tickets will be transferred to the new dates but we will refund your ticket if you are unable to attend then. Please bear with us during this time as we have a large number of customers to contact.”
