Now, if somehow you've been hiding under a rock for the past few months, you might not have seen just how big this cast is for this year's show...you ready? We've got Bradley Walsh as Mr Smee, Eastenders bad-boy and Spandua Ballet's Martin Kemp as Captain Hook and Let It Shine's fave Matt Knight as Peter Pan! 

The cast doesn't end there, we've actually got a line-up of over 100 including BMX stunt guys, high-flying trapeze artists and loads, loads more!

We actually caught up with Bradley not long ago to get the scoop on this year's show!

HOW IS PETER PAN GOING TO BE DIFFERENT TO CINDERELLA?

This is going to be special. If you’re sitting up there in Row G, we’re gonna be right up there with you.

We’ve got the world’s biggest animatronic crocodile, we’ve got a gallon, a life sized gallon coming round the arena which will fire water cannons and we have the dancing waters of Los Vegas on the show.  

That is extraordinary to see alone. It’s going to be amazing. It’s like nothing i’ve ever been involved in.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT PERFORMING IN THESE TYPES OF SHOWS THAT YOU LOVE?

I’ve done many, many theatres and many, many pantomimes, what we wanted to achieve is a family adventure show, a big extravaganza that you can’t see in any theatre - but now, we’ve got it! For a performer like me, coming into a show like this, I love it. It’s a different ball game. I’m so excited. 

I love the laughter and the shouting and the cheering and the screaming and all that sort of business from the kids and the families - this time it’s going to be pretty spectacular.  

HOW DOES IT FEEL WORKING ALONGSIDE MARTIN KEMP?

Working with Martin Kemp is great because I loved Martin’s music, i thought the band were just sensational and I think to have Martin with us playing Hook is brilliant! Not only is just a great bass player for one of the world’s most prolifically bands, he is a great actor. 

He’s done films, he’s been in television, Eastenders, it’s great to be working with Martin. He’s a lovely, lovely man. He won’t be when he’s playing Hook, he’s really going to go for it. 

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO SOMEONE WHO'S NOT YET GRABBED THEIR TICKETS?

If you buy a ticket and see this family adventure, this is something like you’ve never seen before. This will be just amazing. So much so, I wish that i’d bought a ticket. Cinderella was good, this is something on a different level and we’ve absolutely nailed it.

FINALLY, DESCRIBE PETER PAN - CHRISTMAS IN NEVERLAND IN JUST THREE WORDS...

Fantastic. Adventurous. Gigantic.

If that doens't wanna make you be a part of Peter Pan, then nothing will! Snap up some tickets now and get ready for the ultimate Christmas adventure!
