The annual event which is watched by around 20,000 people is credited with offering hilarious comedy routines, colourful dance numbers and catchy songs, together with a comical round-up of the year’s events.

Aladdin tells the famous tale of a poor laundry boy who finds a magic lamp. When he gives it a rub, out pops a genie who grants him three wishes. But will he use his wishes wisely enough to win the girl of his dreams, the beautiful Princess Jasmine?

This year’s pantomime stars Kelsey Beth Crossley (Emmerdale and The Voice) together with James Holmes (best known as Clive from Miranda).
