The world premiere of a brand new pantomime with its central themes based in the realms of the Arthurian legend. Where Arthur, a lowly squire in the court of King Pellinore longs for the love of the beautiful Lady Guinevere. Where the gourmet chef of Pellinore and Guinevere Dame Bisto prepares scrumptious banquets, it could be more efficient to go for a Meal-deal instead, but at least she is trying….. Very trying.

Merlin the time travelling wizard aims to enlighten us with his edification and delights of the modern worlds, whilst arming Arthur with the skills to defeat all evil. Arthurs love for Guinevere takes him on a journey fraught with danger, bringing him directly into the path of the villainous Mordred and his wicked mother Morgan Le Fey (the wicked witch).  

The kingdom has seen better times and a quest to find the Holy Grail is placed upon the young men, as this is a pantomime thing will surely not go their way.


The young Arthur is joined by other squires less able than himself and it is here that we see the true abilities of his "hmmm" equals??????  Well Simmer and Boil are most definitely equal, if you add them together.

Arthurs quest truly starts when he happens to come across The Lady of the Lake (Nimue) his journey takes twists and turns, having to battle all manner of foe..

Come along and see if Arthur is to succeed in his quest for the grail and for Guinevere.
