It will appeal to a broad range of families and people of all ages, will last about 1 hour 30 minutes and is an opportunity to enjoy the entertainment and hospitality and take away the message about the love of Jesus coming into the world at Christmas.

    “Cue a hilarious adventure through Panto Land full of princes, princesses, goodies, baddies and dames galore! It’s also packed full of songs, puppets and panto slapstick fun and mayhem (and moving moments) as the three other actors and I go looking for the Heart of Christmas in the Aladdin, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast pantos. We finally end up in the nativity story where the Heart of Christmas is revealed in a really unusual and dramatic way."

    Tickets on the door will cost £5 for one adult and 1 child; £10 for 2 adults and up to 3 (maximum) children; an extra child £3; and including refreshments. Further details available here.
