Never was a child more blessed – beloved daughter of a King & Queen, treasured Princess, watched over by a gaggle of doting Fairy Godmothers. And then came the fateful day of her christening.

Once upon a time, in a glittering castle, in a land far far away, friends and family gather to celebrate a baby’s birth, her Godmothers bestowing gifts of beauty, wit and grace. But not everyone’s in the mood for celebrating. One very bad-tempered guest that the King and Queen forgot to invite has turned up anyway with a terrible curse to announce – one day the Princess will prick her finger and falls asleep for a hundred years!

And the rest, as they say, is Panto – this year with a futuristic twist!

Damsels in distress, heroes to the rescue, an hilarious Mercury Dame and a host of other much-loved characters are at the ready to bring you music and laughter in one of the greatest adventure stories ever told.

Christmas simply wouldn’t be the same without the Mercury Theatre’s annual feel-good festive treat, so grab the chance to book earlier than ever this year to get the best seats in the house!

Fun for all the family.
