Your guide to theatre shows this Christmas

Its time to get back to those Christmas traditions and what could be more festive than a trip to see a show. In Hull we have a great selection of theatre to fill you full of festive spirit.

“He’s behind you” The Traditional Panto

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – the fairest ad probaby most traditional show of the 2021 season, arrives at Hull New Theatre on the 11th December. Don’t be Grumpy, make a move Doc would be happy with, book a ticket now and let the cast make you Happy!


The rock’n’roll Hull panto is back

Middle Child Theatre bring another riot of a show to Social on Humber Street for 2021. Waltzing wanderer Rapunzel is the heart of Hull Fair, bold as brass and always seeking adventure. Pattie Breadcake is the fair’s worst fortune teller, forever casting chip spice to predict the future and find a fella. And mayor Gothel is the wicked goblin who’s locked them both in a tower far, far away.

A Christmas show without the mistletoe and baubles
