We have been to the Mercury's panto every year since 2008 and was hoping for a great one this year after being a little disappointed with last years show. This year was fantastic especially buttons (dale) and the ugly sisters. My 2 sons (11 & 8) have promised me that they will definitely be coming every year forever.

Hadn’t been to Panto for many years but saw the penultimate performance of Cinderella and what a treat! Superb performances from all the cast and a special mention for “Super Buttons”!! A real “Feel Good Family Show” in a modern Pantomime tradition! I’d only booked our tickets the previous day but collection at the box office was seamless and we... More

We attended the pantomime at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester yesterday. We really enjoyed the Panto and had us all giggling and joining in. My granddaughter really got into it she was shouting and having lots of fun. It was lovely to see a traditional panto that could be enjoyed by both adults and children. WELL DONE. I must also give...

An intimate theatre with great work to see. A mixed programme of classics and new work delivered in a venue that is both historic and contemporary.

Went to the matinee of Cinderella yesterday with family including two grandchildren. We all enjoyed it immensely, it was very funny and a lovely performance. Good that the Mercury returned to a more traditional panto format after the very disappointing production last year.

We were so very happy to see the old faces back again, iggy and Tim to name a couple. Infinitely better this year, familiar writing and great entertainment. Since the Mercury changed hands this is the first show we have enjoyed; it shows if it ain't broke don't fix it! The smoke machine was well used this time as it... More

Enjoyed the pantomime - great fun! Surprised my husband by taking him to see this over the festive season and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! Would recommend it if you haven't seen it!
