The Cinderella pantomime held at the Wycombe Swan over Christmas has bagged two nominations in the coveted UK Pantomime Awards.

Vernon Kay has been nominated in the 'Best Newcomer' category and the entire Cinderella production has been recognised by a 'Best Pantomime' nod. 

The UK Pantomime Association is a charity that celebrates the performance medium of pantomime.

It will hold its annual awards ceremony at the Trafalgar Theatre in London's West End on April 11 and will be hosted by Christopher Biggins.

Theatre Director at the Wycombe Swan, Fiona Martin, said everyone at the venue was delighted about the nominations.

She said: "We truly believe that Cinderella was our best pantomime yet, with a talented cast, incredible digital set and the fantastic debut of Vernon Kay.

"Our audiences had a ball and experienced the very best of panto magic."
