Win! Three pairs of tickets up for grabs at Croydon panto

Oh yes we have!

In one of our last special reader offers for 2019, Inside Croydon is delighted to be working together with the Sanderstead Dramatic Club to offer three pairs of tickets for their annual pantomime.

The panto runs from January 11 to January 18, with Sinbad The Sailor being this year’s all-singing and all-dancing production, promising fun for all the family.

Rehearsals have been underway for some time for Sanderstead’s dedicated and talented performers, who are determined to provide one of the best, traditional shows this festive season.

It will be the 81st annual panto production staged by the Sanderstead Dramatic Club, which was formed in 1907.

Audiences at All Saints Parish Hall will be able to join the adventure with Sinbad and his friends as they chase the evil Prince Tariq on their quest to rescue the Princess and the fabled Star of Mesopotamia. Along the way, there will be fun for all the family, with plenty of music, dancing, laughter and, of course, audience participation.

Tickets start from £6 and you can buy them on their website at

But we have three pairs of tickets to give away to the winners of a special panto-themed, three-part quiz.

The correct answer is a number…

1, Sinbad The Sailor is a panto which is loosely based on The Tales of the Arabian Nights, including the folk stories of Ali Baba: how many thieves did Ali hang out with?

2, From the answer to (1) above, subtract the number of dwarfs who looked after Snow White.

3, Now multiply that number you have after (2) by the number of bears Goldilocks found in the woods.

That will give you the answer.

Send your answer to with “Sinbad competition” in the subject field. Answers to reach us by the closing date of 5pm, Friday, January 3, 2020.

Please include with your answer a daytime contact number, and state your preference of your chosen date of performance: Sunday Jan 12, Tuesday Jan 14, Wednesday Jan 15 or Thursday Jan 16.

Usual Inside Croydon T&Cs apply.
