Dick Whittington

Date: 1st December 2018 - 30th December 2018

Location: Main Stage, Royal Spa Centre

The Royal Spa Centre's 'purrrrfect' family panto!

Come and join us in December 2018 for another spectacular festive treat with the rags to riches tale of Dick Whittington, starring our favourite dame, J P McCue.

Meet our hero, Dick, and his feline friend, Tommy the Cat who travel to London to seek their fortune. Will they be able to save the city from the plague of rats that are rampaging through it?

Featuring all the classic elements you'd expect from our pantomime - awesome sets and costumes, amazing special effects, fabulous songs and dances, and bags of slapstick fun - it would be a CAT-astrophe to miss it!

We don’t allow car seats in the auditorium. Children under 2 years of age can go free if they sit on a lap. Children aged 2 and older need their own ticket.
Pantomime is a noisy show – there are bangs, music, singing and lots of shouting! We have a limited amount of ear defenders that you’re welcome to borrow for the performance if your child is distressed by the noise. Please speak to a staff member who would be happy to assist you.
