ACCORDING to Berwick Kaler regarding the forthcoming pantomime "the people of York are all getting very excited about it" (The Press, December 3).

I have news for you Berwick: oh no we're not.

For the first time in all the years I have been going to see the panto, I am not looking forward to seeing it.

Having queued overnight yet again in order to get tickets for specific seats for a particular performance, only to have the venue changed to a tent in the middle of winter, I still feel cheated.

Furthermore, I very much doubt that I will be missing another night's sleep, especially now the covered area has gone, or even bothering to buy tickets for next year's production.
