Join our hero Jack Trott as he embarks on an extraordinary journey up the beanstalk to an enchanted land above the clouds.

With hilarious antics, loveable characters, and a handful of magic beans, this traditional family panto will captivate audiences of all ages. Oh yes it will!   

Will Jack outwit the ferocious Giant Blunderbore and save the village from his wicked ways? His mum Dame Trott, brother Silly Billy and the family cow Daisy certainly hope so! With the hand of the girl he loves at stake, Jack needs your help on his gigantic adventure!  

Packed with toe-tapping songs, dazzling costumes and stunning sets, this larger-than-life pantomime promises to be an unmissable treat for everyone this festive season.
