Nurse Nellie Saves Panto!

Nurse Nellie Saves Panto!

TICKETS:* £15.50

PLEASE NOTE: With the recent announcement that Somerset is moving to Tier 3 both our venues will be closed to the public from 26th December. 

We are currently working with our producers to move the remaining performances to the February 2021 Half Term, with shows taking place between Saturday 13th – Sunday 21st February.

All customers with affected bookings will be contacted via email, phone or post with further details as soon as possible. We kindly ask that you do not contact us until we contact you, details of how to get in touch will be included in all correspondence.

Our team is taking a well deserved rest over the Christmas weekend but will be running a remote Box Office phone service from Tuesday 29th December. From all of us at the Octagon and Westlands Entertainment Venue, thank you for your ongoing support and patience.

Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without panto and we didn’t want to let our loyal audiences down. So, whilst keeping everyone safe, we are pleased to announce this very special show that will be great fun for all the family.

Due to ongoing restrictions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, our original 2020 Pantomime, DICK WHITTINGTON, has been postponed until FRIDAY 3 DECEMBER - SUNDAY 2 JANUARY 2021.


Don’t miss this fun-sized festive treat for the whole family starring our regular panto stars, GORDON COOPER, JACK GLANVILLE AND THOM FORD.  When a baddie steals the joy of pantomime, will Nurse Nellie and her friends manage to rescue it?  Oh yes they will! 

Written by our regular pantomime producer, PAUL HENDY, and with a cast of five, this hilarious, socially distanced, 70-minute extravaganza will feature all your favourite panto moments including great musical numbers; the cart routine; and, of course, the famous ghost gag bench (‘well, we’ll have to do it again then, won’t we?!’) 

Joyous, funny and uplifting, this really is a must-see show and the perfect antidote to 2020!

With a reduced number of tickets available, we strongly advise booking early for this!

Protect your booking against Covid related illness!

Purchase ticket protection alongside your Nurse Nellie Saves Panto tickets to protect your booking should you be affected directly by Covid 19. This service costs £1 per ticket.

If you purchase this cover then refunds will be allowed for the following reasons only;

  1. If you test positive for COVID 19.
  2. If you experience COVID 19 symptoms in the 14 days prior to your booking.
  3. If you are in close proximity to anyone who has experienced COVID 19 symptoms in the 14 days before your booked performance.
  4. If you have been instructed to self-isolate and can no longer attend your performance.

Refund requests must be made by emailing the Box Office at octagontheatre@southsomerset.gov.uk or calling 01935 422884 before the performance start time of the booking. Once the performance date and time has passed for the selected tickets we will be unable to issue any refunds. The £1 per ticket charge is non-refundable.


Tickets without this cover will be subject to our standard terms and conditions of sale which are that unless the performance is cancelled, tickets are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged.

We know that at the moment, with extra restrictions things are more uncertain and there may be concerns that your trip to the panto could be disrupted. We want to look after our customers as a priority but also need to balance the financial impact the pandemic has had on The Octagon Theatre and the costs associated with staging a production.

If your performance is cancelled you will be entitled to a full refund. If the performance does go ahead but you are unable to attend due to COVID illness, symptoms or the need to self-isolate we will not be in a position to refund or exchange your tickets without purchasing this ticket cover as we would be unable to resell your tickets and the cost of staging the production will still need to be covered. Therefore we encourage all customers to protect their booking by adding this service.


Tickets available from: £15

A £1 ticket levy is included in all stated ticket prices.
