The Basel English Panto Group Every Christmas something magical happens in Basel, the annual Panto. This is a a family show based on a children’s story with dancing, singing and silly stock characters.  It is a British tradition with roots in pre-christian winter festivities but is now enjoyed by a wide range of expatriates and Swiss nationals, having become a much-loved fixture in the Basel seasonal calendar. The first English panto was performed in Basel in 1994; the BEPG was formed in 2009 and now performs to packed houses in early December each year.

The income from the panto supports the education of disadvantaged girls in Kenya at the renowned Starehe Girl’s Center and funds the next year’s show. In order to get an alert when tickets go on sale, sign up on the website as tickets, especially for the matinees, are soon sold out. Also, you may be interested in information about volunteering to help produce the show or auditioning for a part. it is not unusual for up to 100 people to be involved in some way each year.
