PASSENGERS on board the Heathrow Express were surprised and delighted after being treated to a surprise panto performance on board.
The show took just 15 minutes on a service from London Paddington to Heathrow.

The performance was held by the Natural Theatre Company, and had been specially scripted to last just 15 minutes – the duration of the Heathrow Express journey between London Paddington Station and Heathrow Terminals 2 and 3.
Rather than treading the boards, Prince Charming could be seen riding the rails and running the aisles of a Heathrow Express carriage in search of travellers to try on the famous glass slipper.
Meanwhile, Cinderella was busy avoiding the ugly sisters and desperately trying to get her ticket to the ball stamped by the on board team.
Customers were quick to join in with the traditional festive panto, sparking shouts of “He’s behind you” and “Oh no it isn’t, oh yes it is!”.
Les Freer, Heathrow Express director said: “Christmas is fast approaching so we’re well into panto season and we wanted to share some of that festive cheer on board with the Panto Express.
“Cinderella is a family favourite but this is probably the first time it’s been performed at 100 miles per hour on a train in just 15 minutes.”
