Age Advice:

Pantomime is really exciting, but it can also be a bit loud and scary in places and sometimes has the odd naughty joke for the grown-ups to enjoy.  Please bear this in mind if you are planning to bring children under the age of 5 or anyone of a nervous or sensitive disposition.  If you would like any further guidance on the content of this year’s pantomime please call our Box Office team on 02380 711811.  We would be happy to talk through any concerns you may have to reassure you before your visit.
