Two of the most popular Christmas traditions are pantomime and mince pies, so what could be better than combining the two?

Grimsby Auditorium will be holding a special Mince Pie Matinee on December 19 as part of this year’s panto production.

Sleeping Beauty is an enchanting mix of music, magic, adventure and pantomime fun with bags of audience participation.

And for the first time, pantomime is brought to the Auditorium by one of the country’s top pantomime producers, Imagine Theatre, with a script written by the BAFTA Award-winning writing team of Iain Lauchlan and Will Brenton.

Princess Belle is cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse so that on her 18th birthday she will prick her finger upon a spinning wheel and die.

But the good fairy, Azuriel, alters the spell to send the princess into an enchanted sleep which will last for one hundred years. The only way she can be awoken is by a kiss from her one true love.

Shows are at various times; call the box office on 01472 311300 for details.
