Tickets for the first evening performance of 'socially distanced' pantomime Sleeping Beauty at Manchester Opera House will be gifted to NHS workers and their families.

They should head to and register for the ballot.

Making his pantomime debut is Salford-born comedian Jason Manford as Muddles, alongside Blackpool’s Jodie Prenger as The Enchantress, returning to Manchester Opera House for the fifth time.

Joining them for the first time in Manchester after a 21-year panto stint at Bradford’s Alhambra Theatre is Billy Pearce as King Billy with Eric Potts as The Queen, Jenny Gaynor as Carabosse, Louis Gaunt as The Prince and Sarah Goggin as Princess Beauty.

Sleeping Beauty will run from December 12 to January 3 with a relaxed performance on December 31.

Tickets are available in a range of ‘bubble’ sizes with a safe distance between each.
