Aladdin
Jump aboard our magic carpet as we travel to ancient China to meet our 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!

Starring X Factor winner Sam Bailey and popstar Antony Costa from Blue, as well as Channel 5 Milkshake! presenter Nathan Connor, BBC Radio Leicester's Martin Ballard, Paul Burling from Britain's Got Talent and magicians Matthew Pomeroy and Natasha Lamb.

We need you to star in our pantomime! Auditions for the junior chorus will be held on Sunday 21 July. More information to follow.

Guardian

"Britain's crossest comic roars back in style. Hilarious tour-de-force."

In 1988 Heaton formed The Beautiful South, who released 10 hugely successful albums, Jacqui Abbott was lead vocalist in The Beautiful South from 1994 to 2000 and she sang many of their signature hits including Rotterdam, Perfect 10, Don’t Marry Her and Dream A Little Dream.

Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland’s greatest living female voice. In 2020, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with a 40 Years Live concert tour.

From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of western Scotland and learning how to street sing across Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf ) Eddi’s path soon led her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her band Fairground Attraction had huge international success and number one hits with Perfect and debut album First of a Million Kisses which stormed the charts in the late 1980s.

Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as The Songs of Robert Burns and last years Cavalier. She has won Brit Awards, been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the world’s greatest concert and festival stages and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including folk, jazz, pop, world, punk and even classical work with various orchestras.

In 2019 Eddi was invited to be a special guest with Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive tour, she released her Starlight EP, played sold out headline shows and recorded a programme for BBC Radio’s Classic Scottish Album series about her Robert Burns recordings and appeared on BBC Television’s Songs of Praise and as part of Billy Connolly’s Made In Scotland series.

2020s 40 Years Live concerts promise to be something special, as with any Eddi Reader concert, the magic is being made in the moment, no two concerts ever the same.
