Roll up! Roll up! The People’s Panto is back!

The People’s Theatre in Heaton are bringing in Christmas with GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS, a big top adventure for the whole family! 

Dame Gertie’s Circus needs a miracle after its honeypot of pennies is accidentally stolen by three porridge-guzzling, talking bears. Can Dame Gertie and her son Silly Billy save their circus? Are the three bears the new star attraction they’ve been searching for? And what is dastardly Ringmaster Heinkel, owner of the rival circus, up to?

Join Goldilocks, Silly Billy, Dame Gertie and friends to find out in this all-singing, all-dancing, festive treat that’s just right!

Audience-favourite Steve Robertson returns as the hilarious and saucy Dame, with Molly Winton making her People’s Panto debut as Goldilocks in this fun-filled Panto by local writer and actor Tom Whalley!  

GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS is playing at the People’s Theatre from Saturday 10th to Sunday 18th December. Tickets start from £13, and a ‘Family Ticket’ can save you money. There is a ‘Relaxed Performance’ on Tuesday 13th at 7pm, during which there will be a BSL interpreter on stage. Many of the performances are now full, so don’t hang about to get your paws on a ticket and book now! All details and booking at
