Live music, mess galore and the chance to make as much noise as you can

Our alternative panto returns for its seventh year with a rock and roll take on a classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast.

Will Belle get to live the adventurous life she always wanted? Will the Prince escape his beastly curse? And will the villainous Lord Wigbert get his hands on Humber Street at last?

Find out in our swashbuckling romp of a Christmas night out at the stunning Jubilee Central on King Edward Street.

With a full live band, mess galore and the chance to make as much noise as you can, Beauty and the Beast keeps up the wild and chaotic style that has made the Middle Child panto an unmissable part of Hull’s festive season.

Family shows run from 18-23 December with tickets starting at £10.50 or £42 for two adults and two children.

​Our late-night, adult-only shows also return for five nights only after a sell out run in 2017, with a 10pm start making them the perfect fit for adults who aren’t ready to grow-up just yet.

BSL performances

​The Thursday 20 December performance at 7pm will be signed by a BSL interpreter.

If you have any access requirements or questions about these performances please contact us or call Hull Box Office on 01482 221113 in advance of your visit.

​Carers’ tickets
