Our first Pantomime

Our friend Steve is in town so we met up with a bunch of his friends last night and went to the Hackney Empire Theatre to see a pantomime, which is a stage show where the actors encourage the audience to yell things at certain times or when certain things happen on stage. The kids in the audience loved it, and it appears that the parents that were there probably loved it when they were kids too. The show we saw Dick Whittington and his Cat.

We left at intermission.

It was interesting to see, but probably more so if you are a kid. More interesting to me were the neighbourhoods we saw before and after the show. We walked along the river in Wapping and ate lunch at the Prospect of Whitby, which is a pub that has been around since the 1500s. After the show we walked around Hackney and Bethnal Green and had dinner around there somewhere at a tasty gastropub.
