Epsom Playhouse's seasonal production of Peter Pan won a Best Show award at the recent Great British Pantomime Awards on May 3.

The roundly praised and sold-out production by Spillers Pantomimes won the gong for Best Show Under 750 (seats), beating out stiff competition from shows in Lincoln, Loughborough, Shrewsbury and Swindon.

The award ceremony was held online via Youtube over five nights and included a number of celebrities presenting awards, including Actor Matt Lapinskas who was part of the cast who won the award in 2019, and announced Playhouse's Peter Pan as the 2020 winner.

"We are over the moon!" A spokesperson for Epsom Playhouse posted to Twitter.

"Spillers Pantomimes produced a spectacular production, talented cast and technical crew created magic on stage and all playhouse staff and stewards worked tirelessly months in advance and all over Christmas to ensure a sold out run!

"A real team effort! Thank you!" They added.
