Dick Whittington & His Cat

Dick Whittington & His Cat


Following the huge success of Jack and the Beanstalk, 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!

And that’s just the start of his adventures. With his 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!

Duration: 2 hours with interval
