This event has been and gone.
Jump aboard the magic carpet and travel to ancient China to meet the hero, young Aladdin.
Aladdin, with his mother Widow Twankey, works long hours in the family laundry.
His life takes a dramatic turn one day when his long-lost uncle, Abanazar, appears and helps him find an ancient lamp from a cave full of treasure.
Disaster falls as Aladdin becomes trapped in the cave and in despair he rubs his hands – accidentally unleashing the genie within.
As the genie offers to grant Aladdin’s three wishes, he soon finds out that magic wishes are not all they seem.
Join us for this traditional family pantomime full of songs, laughter, fun, baddies, silliness – and lots of custard pies!
