Sat 18 Dec - Sun 30 Jan

Get ready for the biggest, all-star pantomime to date as international superstar Joan Collins makes her pantomime debut as Queen Rat in the family adventure Dick Whittington.

Follow Dick and his Cat on their journey to London; set sail to foreign lands and help our heroes fight off the evil Queen and King Rat in an attempt to save the day and win the heart of the beautiful Alice Fitzwarren.

Birmingham Panto Cast Joining Joan on stage in this spectacular pantomime is Julian Clary as The Spirit of the Bells, Nigel Havers as the dastardly King Rat, Keith Harris & Orville as the hilariously hopeless Rat Catchers, and TV favourite Jeffrey Holland as Dame Felicity Fitzwarren.

This year’s pantomime is bursting at the seams with magnificent scenery, stunning special effects and glittering costumes plus even more hilarious jokes  and crazy antics! Book now!
