About the Show

Filled with magic and monstrous fun, this tale as old as time is the perfect festive treat.

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