Pantomime Posters – Just as funny as the Panto.

We are about to enter Pantomime season. I have my tickets for Cinderella at the Birmingham Hippodrome for some time now, its a tradition of going to the panto at Christmas I can remember all the way back to when I was a child.

During a recent visit to the Hippodrome for a meeting, I had the time to wander down some of the corners corridors that people dont often go. Namely the passageway past the toilets on the 2nd Floor. Shoulds dodgy I know, but theres a load of old Posters introducing Pantomime past, including some with Norman Wisom I remember seeing.

Anyways, I decided to try and see what modern designers and marketers would do with the concept of panto,  and came across this picture.. Which I thought was funny anyways (oh no its not – oh yes it is…!)
