The People’s Panto has become something of a Newcastle institution in recent years, and we are proud to present the latest seasonal show from the team behind last year’s sell-out hit Rapunzel.

This fantastic treat for the whole family tells the classic tale of Belle, a young woman longing for romance and adventure who falls in love with a Prince cursed to being a Beast.

Music, dancing, jokes and jam-packed with Christmas cheer, this is festive fun for everyone!
