Allan, Andy and Grant return in a BEAST of a Pantomime!

Book your seats early for our 2018/19 pantomime as Allan, Andy & Grant lead the cast in another unmissable King’s Theatre extravaganza! 

Pantomime is loud for a small pair of ears, spectacular sights can sometimes cause tears! If bringing a little one, please be aware one or two scenes are intended to scare. The odd naughty joke for grown-up laughter ensures that we all finish Happily Ever After.
