Our rock’n’roll Hull panto is back for another alternative Christmas night out

Leave the kids at home and join our hero, Ariel, on a riotous adventure to the surface of the Humber as she swashbuckles her way to saving the seafaring Prince.

Our late-night, adult-only shows are your chance to enjoy an alternative Christmas night out in the company of Hull’s favourite panto dame, Pattie Breadcake, in our rock’n’roll take on the classic fairy tale this Christmas.

With a full live band, mess galore and the chance to make as much noise as you can, The Little Mermaid continues the rowdy, chaotic style that has made the Middle Child panto an unmissable part of Hull’s festive season.

Tickets are on sale now – sea you there!

The 10pm performance on Friday 27th December will be BSL-interpreted by our regular panto signer, Dave Wycherley.
