Overview

Make sure the whole family is full of beans this Christmas and follow the hilarious ups and downs of our hero Jack Trott, the boy who manages to sell the family's only valuable possession, Daisy the Cow, for a handful of beans (and they weren't even Heinz).

The flash plugin is required to play this video.


Looking forward to your boos and hisses as Fleshcreep is NIGEL HAVERS, whose numerous television credits include Don't Wait Up and Coronation Street. He received a BAFTA nomination for the film, Chariots of Fire.

Playing the Forest Fairy is CBeebies star KATY ASHWORTH, who presents I Can Cook. She has also appeared in Justin's House, five of the CBeebies pantomimes and CBeebies Live.

Simple Simon will be played by JON MONIE, whose mischievous comedy and hilarious antics have made him a huge audience favourite.

Dame Trott will be the award-winning NICK WILTON, best known as Mr Lister in EastEnders, and also for Carrott's Lib and Jackanory.

Join Jack on his quest to defeat the evil Giant Blunderbore and his horrible helper Fleshcreep, to win not only his fortune but also the hand of the King's beautiful daughter.

The whole production is complimented by lavish costumes and sumptuous sets and promises to be another spectacular success from producers UK Productions...don't miss it!

    4 Star Rating One of the best shows in the region ... Set pieces and musical numbers are refreshingly original, as are the jokes, while the cast match the very high bar set by Bath pantos down the years - The Stage

    This pantomime is totally, utterly, perfectly proper indeed – oh yes it most certainly is! - Bath Magazine

    4 Star Rating Brightly staged and colourfully costumed ... plenty to please the eye as well as the ear - Bristol Post

    Fantastic entertainment for all the family and judging by my children’s reaction when we came out and the huge grin on their faces this really is one not to be missed - WhatsOn Bristol

    Full of energy and colour, song and dance ... a terrific pantomime, with spectacular sets and costumes to match scintillating performances ... Highly recommended for all the family - Fine Times Recorder

    4 Star Rating A pantomime, which delivers in talent and spectacle with colourful sets and exuberant dance numbers to provide a sparkling seasonal treat ... Nigel Havers gives the impression of having far more fun than a working chap has any right to - StageTalk Magazine

    A traditional festive treat of silliness and slapstick, terrific songs, plenty of audience participation and a few age-old routines that never fail to please - ListomaniaBath
