Pantomimes and Entertainment
With everything from fun-filled pantomimes and festive shows to seasonal exhibitions and ice-skating, there is plenty to keep you entertained this Christmas.
Pantomimes in Nottingham
Nottingham's pantomimes have become the stuff of legends - and this year promises to be even better than before as we get ready to cheer the heroes and boo the baddies once again. At Nottingham Playhouse, you will be able to see an enchanting performance of Sleeping Beauty, which opens on 28th November and runs until 17th January 2015. Written by Kenneth Alan Taylor, it tells the classic story of a beautiful princess who is cursed to sleep for 100 years before she finally meets her prince.
Meanwhile, at Nottingham's Theatre Royal, you will be able to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarves which stars Birds of a Feather actress Lesley Joseph as the Wicked Queen and East-Enders and Dancing on Ice heart-throb Sam Attwater as The Prince. The show runs from 6th December to 11th January 2015.
Music fans are invited to go along to the Hallé Christmas Concert at the Royal Concert Hall when soloist Elin Manahan Thomas will be performing a selection of timeless Christmas pieces. For an evening of show-stopping enetertainment make sure you book tickets to see The Best of the West End at Christmas, which is also at the Concert Hall.
For something with a more local flavour make sure you go along to Nottingham Arts Theatre where the pantomime will be Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood. Watch our favourite outlaw, Robin Hood as he fights the Evil Sheriff and tries to win the heart of Maid Marian. The show, which runs from 6th to 21st December, will include songs, dance, glittering costume and slap-stick humour.
Pantos and shows around Nottinghamshire
Newark Palace Theatre will be welcoming the popular comedian and entertainer Bernie Clifton as he stars in The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan. Expect chaos and comedy in this family show which runs from 10th December to 3rd January.
Step back in time with a production of The Twelve Days of Christmas at Clumber Park. This light-hearted story is set in 1895 and follows the story of Mr Edward Fitzwilliam as he tries to woo the beautiful Miss Fairfax with a series of extraordinary presents.
In Notts we love to bowl you over. If you are visiting for the England vs. Australia Ashes Test Match we have some great offers at bars, restaurants and attractions. Offers vary depending on the venue, see individual listings for details.
