Join us for a pirate, pussycat and rat-packed panto party! Dick Whittington’s heading to town to seek his fortune - he’s heard the streets are paved with gold. But when he gets there, it’s hard to see the gold beneath the grime. And King Rat is out to get him! With a trusty cat in tow and pirate ships on the horizon, Dick’s going to need a little help from you if he’s going to win the day.

Book now for this fabulous festive treat - it’ll be a Whitting-tonne of fun!
