Liverpool Live’s Lesley Butler and Aaron Hayes brought Sleeping Beauty magic to Hope Street Liverpool when they launched Just Entertainment’s first pantomime in the city, coming to Hope Street Theatre this Christmas.

Sleeping Beauty looks to be the biggest pantomime the venue has hosted.

Lesley Butler is cunning and evil Carabosse, while her radio station colleague and breakfast show host Aaron Hayes is Dame Dolly. Local performers are Lucy Forrester as Princess Aurora and Brian Comer, Fester the Jester.

A special relaxed performance takes place on December 21 and a BSL signed performance December 28.

It runs from December 16–30.
