About

Situated in Peterborough's city centre the Key Theatre brings great entertainment to the area with the theatre programme made up of 'home-grown' productions, national touring shows, local community productions and a full programme of one-off concerts.

Also part of the Key Theatre is ‘Riva’ the fabulous restaurant offering excellent food, plus views of the Nene embankment, making this a stunning setting for city centre dining.

The Key’s pantomimes are renowned throughout the region for their quality and traditional sense of good, clean, family fun. And with over 30 years of experience it’s no wonder that thousands of children have grown up enjoying panto at the Key and many now bring their own families too!

Every seat provides an excellent view for children of all ages and sizes and you’re sure to feel part of the excitement, action and magic of the production from beginning to end! With a running time of less than two hours Key pantomimes are slick, fast moving and full of fun.

With excellent discounts for schools and party bookers and over 50 performances to choose from – there will be a time, a price and a date to suit you.
