Panto is coming to Bury Met December 8–24.

The production will be staged by local professional theatre company The Big Tiny, whose founders Will Cousins and Ben Richards, in the 2022 UK Panto Awards, were nominated for Best Panto (under 500 seats), and Richards was nominated in the Best Director and Best Script categories.

Dick Whittington is the pantomime adventure that follows the eponymous hero to London Town where he seeks fame, fortune and happiness accompanied by his trusty cat.

On December 15, there will be a pyjama performance, giving audiences the chance to kick back, while on December 19 at 2:30PM there will be a relaxed performance aimed at pre-school children and anyone who would appreciate a more flexible atmosphere.
