The Beccles stage will be filled with festive sparkle this Christmas as pantomime returns to the town with a Snow White production.

Some of the cast arrived in Beccles this week to launch this year's pantomime after it was postponed last Christmas due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Producer Ryan Holt said: “I am so excited that our full-scale pantomime will be back on stage this Christmas and that we will be able to bring what is many families Christmas tradition back this year.

“We have a fantastic show lined up with some hilarious slapstick routines, dazzling special effects and stunning costumes”.

A professional cast will be joined by local young people who will be the pantomime ensemble and play the seven dwarfs.

Snow White runs from December 18 to January 3 at Beccles Public Hall and Theatre.
