A special Christmas Eve version of our pantomime for you to enjoy at home.

Filled with magic and monstrous fun, this tale as old as time is the perfect festive treat and this extra special digital version features bonus Christmas content to really get you in the spirit.

Join us to laugh and cheer, ‘boo’ the baddies and singalong to magnificent musical numbers – it’s a guaranteed great night for all the family.

When the beautiful Belle is trapped in an enchanted castle by a mysterious beast, the stage is set for a spellbinding adventure. Can she escape with the help of her friends? Will Belle melt the beast’s frosty heart and lift his curse before it’s too late?

Packed with hilarious characters, stunning sets, glittering costumes and plenty of panto humour, you won’t want to miss our legendary pantomime.

How It Works

Our Online Christmas Eve Special will be available to purchase until 6.45pm on Fri 24 Dec, so be sure to buy in good time to avoid disappointment.

At the time of booking, you’ll be sent an email containing an e-ticket. This e-ticket will contain a link to login here on our website, as well as a link to the page on our website where the recording can be accessed. You should login using the email and password you used at the point of booking.

Once you’re logged in, head to the second link in your e-ticket – that’s where you’ll watch the show. If you encounter any issues, please visit our FAQ page for help.

We recommend you start viewing the show before 8pm, as the video will be taken down at 10.30pm and we don’t want you to miss any of the magic.
