Dick Whittington

Freshly updated for 2020 by Jude Christian and Cariad Lloyd, this hilarious and heartfelt new version of the classic tale is packed with the cheekiest of jokes, the chattiest of animals, the awesomest of songs and the messiest of silliness.

We're thrilled that thousands of families tuned in to watch our free YouTube streams of Dick Whittington over Christmas, helping us to celebrate panto's place at the heart of British theatre.

Following Government advice about national Coronavirus measures, performances of Dick Whittington from 16 December to 23 January were cancelled.

We have emailed all ticket holders of affected performances, and we thank you for your patience caused during this period of disruption. If you have not received an email with a credit voucher, please contact our Box Office.
