Get set for this year’s fun and festive traditional family panto extravaganza!

Brimming with laughter, song, dance and adventure, this fantastic tale of giants, princesses, magic beans and ice cream will leave you feeling on top of the world!

Life used to be idyllic for the mad-cap residents of Puzzlewood, until one day a giant arrived floating on a cloud. But when he goes a step too far, we need a hero… Enter our Jack, along with Simple Simon, Dame Trott, Daisy the cow and the rest of the gang to the rescue…

Brought to you by our ‘Diamond Jubilee’ Queen of Panto, Janice Dunn, and Company favourites, including Ignatius Anthony, Clare Humphrey and Dale Superville.

Don’t delay, book today as no Christmas would be complete without this perfect treat for the whole family.

Give the gift of laughter this yuletide. Early booking is strongly recommended as last year was our biggest selling panto, ever!

Please note that in this year’s panto there will be smoke, haze, pyrotechnics and strobe/flashing lights.

Running time 2 hours 40 minutes approx including an interval.
