We’re delighted to be open once again and look forward to welcoming you to a brilliant 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.

COVID Guarantee

We’re so pleased to be welcoming audiences back to the venue but would like to reassure you that, should your booking be affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, you will be offered a refund, account credit or a ticket exchange (where available), giving you peace of mind when you book.
