Knowsley’s Christmas panto! Oh yes it is!

Christmas isn’t Christmas without good old-fashioned family fun at a panto and here in Knowsley, we never want to miss out. 

This year, Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park welcomes brilliant performances of the English fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Watch the classic story play out on stage filled with singing and dancing, and lots of laughter. We will see Jack being tricked into selling their beloved cow, Daisy, for a bag of ‘useless’ beans which actually turn out to be magical and is the beginning of a wild adventure.

Coronation Street’s Steven Arnold will play the giant’s henchman Fleshcreep and will be performing alongside Tom Balmont, a top comedy performer, who will play Jack Trott. 

Singing sensation Katie Burke will be returning to Knowsley to play Princess Jill after taking to the stage last year as Belle in Beauty and the Beast, and the hilarious Harry Moore will be the fabulous Dame Tilly Trott.

Performances take place on:
Saturday 1 December, 7pm
Sunday 2 December, 1pm and 5pm
School performances:
Monday 3 December, 10am and 1.30pm
Tuesday 4 December, 10am and 1.30pm

Tickets are £10 for adults and £8 for children and concessions.

There is also a buy 10 get one free offer for the school performances. Each ticket is only £7 with this offer. For more details, you can contact the Knowsley Culture Development and Events team on 0151 443 5749.
