Louie Spence leads the cast, alongside HMT favourite Alan McHugh, Call the Midwife star Laura Main, River City funny man Paul-James Corrigan, Two Doors Down’s Joy McAvoy, River City star Sally Howitt and Emmerdale’s Paul Luebke. Cinderella is running from Saturday 30 November 2019 – Sunday 5 January 2020.
If you prefer a white Christmas then Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, is running at the Tivoli from Friday 6 December to Sunday 22 December 2019.
For something utterly magical and totally different, it’s got to be the Lemon Tree and the mesmerising Ice House. A transporting show that will leave you feeling warm and mushy inside! Apparently the Ice House will ‘melt your heart’. Book tickets for a mix of dates, ranging from Tuesday 3 December to Sunday 22 December 2019.
Or, for a genie in a bottle, visit the Aberdeen Arts Centre where Aladdin will be playing from Sunday 1 December to Tuesday 24 December 2019.
Tickets for all the performances highlighted above can be purchased at www.aberdeenperformingarts.com.
So if the Panto and our Christmas Offer is calling your name, here are Skene House Hotel’s recommendations for having a very merry Christmas break in Aberdeen.
It’s possible to cook up a Christmas roast, or a light supper, in your own kitchen within your Skene House apartment. You can also keep goodies in the fridge, such as cold drinks and snacks, to take with you to the theatre to save a few pennies. If you’d prefer to eat out then dine at His Majesty’s Theatre itself. Alternatively, Carmine’s on Union Terrace is ideally suited for Skene House Hotel Apartments at Rosemount and His Majesty’s. This old school Italian trattoria serves up very reasonable set menus, pizza and pasta. This is a traditional, family run establishment with a heart of gold.
If you like to rely on trusted chain restaurants then Union Square Shopping Centre, right next to the train station, serves up a rich offering of family friendly eateries in close proximity to the Tivoli Theatre. Restaurants include Carluccio’s, Giraffe, TGI Fridays, Pizza Express, Las Iguanas, Wagamamas, Prezzo and Yo Sushi, and there’s easy parking too.
For a touch of tapas try your tots’ tastebuds at Cafe Andaluz on Bon Accord Street, for kids who love their meat drop by Maggie’s Grill on Holborn Street, or for hearty fish and chips park up at The Ashvale Restaurant on Great Western Road.
And don’t worry about feeding the family the next morning as Skene House’s festive offer includes breakfast, so all you have to worry about is what festive adventures you’ll undertake next.
Skene House Hotel Apartments in Holburn are very central, situated in the West End of Aberdeen. Skene House Hotel Apartments at Rosemount are located metres from His Majesty’s Theatre, and an easy walk to the Lemon Tree, Aberdeen Arts Centre or the Tivoli.
