This is the perfect show for families as children of all ages will love this fun take on a fairytale classic. Pantomimes are popular around Christmas, so it is nice to see one in the new year. If you missed out on the fun over the Christmas holidays, there's still time to check out a show. Taking place around the time schools let out for the half term holidays, parents can cheer at the fact that they have a way to entertain their children. Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of the beautiful princess who falls into a deep sleep, due to an enchantment. A classic story, which is still popular today, this is a great show the whole family can enjoy. See the story brought to life in a fun new adaption. Pantomimes are a lot of fun as well, who doesn't love to shout and scream and boo the villain. Come along and get ready to cheer when Sleeping Beauty finally awakes.
