Pantomime casts, crews and front-of-house staff took a break from entertaining to participate in a ball.

The fifteenth annual Pantomime Ball saw stars from across the South East, including Richmond and Epsom, gather in Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, Croydon.

Those attending enjoyed a late supper, music and dancing, with a fancy dress theme for back stage and front-of-house staff.

Professional dancers warmed up the dance floor, with Suzanne Shaw, currently appearing as the Genie in Richmond's Aladdin, leading a re-enactment of the Time Warp.

Rob Callender, Fairfield's deputy technical manager, said: "Once more casts and crews from across the region have rallied to the call to celebrate the pantomime season and sense of community it creates, by gathering for this fun event.

"It is a great annual tradition and following the success of last year’s live band, we arranged one again this year."
