Arts Society Chiswick – Pantomime: A Very British Feast

November 10 @ 8:00 pm GMT

Well known to The Arts Society Chiswick, Giles Ramsey returns to deliver another spirited lecture on the making of the great British pantomime.

Over 2500 years in the making from mixing Greek and Roman drama with commedia dell’arte and medieval morality plays, stir in a sprig of C17th masque, a dash of C18th harlequinade and a hefty shot of Victorian music hall. Mix this potent brew and, hey presto, you have the modern Christmas pantomime. Oh No You Don’t!!!!

Giles is a fellow of St Chad’s College, Durham University and a Course Leader in Theatre at the V&A Museum as well as a regular lecturer on the V&A Academy courses. He combines academic analysis with hands on experience to bring a unique insight to the world of the theatre.
