To Mr Ian Gordon, my sister in laws from Glasgow came to see Pinocchio on the 18th January. They said it was a fantastic show and Jimmy Cricket just hit it off. They absolutely loved it. They are Kim and Kaye Harold from knightswood, and wanted to say thank you for such a good show. They can't wait to come back to see jock 'n' roll on May 9th. And also thank you for putting Joe Longthorne on 13th June. xx
Debbie Cook

My friends and I go every year to the panto and were there yesterday. Really enjoyed ourselves especially being in the front row. The only downside was I was finding it hard to grasp what was being said sometimes, I felt the cast were talking a bit too fast. But apart from that we all really enjoyed it and looking forward to this year's panto.
Carol Campbell
Seen the Panto on Saturday night, it was absolutely fantastic, the cast work so well together. The most hilarious bits are the inprimptu parts!! just as Jonny Mac says 'a enjoyed masel'. It's a fantastic night out, been going to the Pavilion Panto for about 7 years now and never been disappointed. Oh, n Stepen Purdon, you had toooooo much fun with that water pistol, lol. Thanks from the BOOM girls in the 2nd row!!!'
Susan Corrigan
This was by far my best panto i've been to. All parts were played well but hats off to Johnny Mac, Jiminy Cricket was hilarious, my 3 year old son was also impressed and i thought that there was a good balance of humour for all ages. if i wasn't so busy this week i'd go back in a heartbeat.
Scott Rowan

Trish Reilly
Was at the panto on 3 January 2014. Second year with same cast. Absolutely fantastic. Johnny Mac stole the show (again)!!! I certainly was "enjoying maself". Will be back next year. xxx
Giselle Mackenzie
I'd highly recommend going to see Pinnochio - there is something for everyone, from River City gags, to a One Direction song to Michelle McManus thinking she is on Pop Idol all over again! Jiminy Cricket is the shining light throughout and kept me and the whole family entertained, so much so that we are still shouting "Jiminy, your brolly, bzzzzz" to this day! I certainly enjoyed myself (as did Jiminy) and so will you.
Nicola McCluskie

Myself and three friends saw the matinee performance of the panto yesterday. We were in the front row and I've got to say that was the best panto we have all seen at the Pavillion. We were in stitches. The whole cast were brilliant. The music, singing and dancing was brill. Even made more funny when the Lion's head fell onto my sister's lap. Well done to everyone. Looking forward to the next panto. Carol, Margaret, Elizabeth and Janess xxx

I was at the Wizard That Never Woz a few years ago in 2008 and it was a wizard of a show,but I haven't been to this one yet,I see this show has Michelle McManus in it as Good Witch Glinda. Maybe she will bring some more magic to the show? I'm really looking forward to seeing this Seasons Panto,oh yes I am !!!
Michael McNulty
i have been going to the panto for years at the pavillion and it was the best panto that i have seen yet it was even better than the lAST wizard of never was. i watched the tv show on the pavillion and realised the work that went into making of the shows well done everyone out front and backstage. you all deserve funding

Lydia Dolan
It's been years since we've been at a panto. We were there on Saturday and were not disappointed. We had a great time with our two grandchildren, aged 2 and 5. Joyce Falconer, the Wicked Witch was just brilliant, and so were the Tin Man's jokes: What do the Chinese call a nappy? A sack-a-poopoo !!
Ellen Thomson
The panto at the pavillion always makes my year and this one is the best yet. Fantastic cast- everyone was absolutely amazing. I was blown away by Michelle's singing, the tin man-hilarious, dean park- a natural...I was so impressed. Keep up the good work!

Without a doubt the best cast and script at any panto I've ever been to. Laughed from start to finish and would def recommend for all age groups. Just great humour and a lot less inuendo's than I've heard in previous pantos.

Just back from the panto with my husband and 2 children 5 and 3 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The tin man was fantastic. Will definitely be returning to the pavilion.
Johnny Mac is funny and his catch phrase will become very popular i went with a group and on the coach back every 1 was saying his catch phrase... AM ENJOYING MA SELF
Been twice already and cant wait to go back again! Johnny Mac is brilliant and im sure his catch phrase will be the saying of christmas. You munchkins are absolutely talented. Their tricks are wow! Well done Pavilion. Everything is great
Best panto yet!! Myself and my husband were actually crying with laughter, so funny!! Great night out! Maybe next year we will take the kids, ha!
Dawn McFarlane
Annual trip from over the border to see the Panto in Glasgow. Great show, nice to see Joyce Falconer back she is a fab wicked witch!
Brilliant ! the best panto I've seen in years. grandson was singing the song all the way home and the next day too, have to admit so were we along with the tin man's catch phrase. the whole cast are brilliant but special mention has to go to the wicked witch who was truly outstanding and Tin man who was a joy. "We enjoyed ourselves!!!!!!"
