A POPULAR East Yorkshire venue has announced a "cracking" brand new Christmas pantomime - full of "silliness, slapstick and magic."

Join TaleGate Theatre Productions for the 'Mother Goose' Christmas show at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) on Saturday December 11.

Feathers will fly as Fairy Virtue battles against Baron Vain in this traditional tale of 'Good vs Evil'. Will Mother Goose be swayed to the dark side of vanity or will she save her best friend, Priscilla, the goose that lays golden eggs? Will Billy Goose marry Jill, the baron’s daughter? Find out during the show.

PAC director, Janet Farmer, said: “It’s wonderful that we are able to bring our audiences of all ages a pantomime this year.

"We are very much looking forward to welcoming audiences into the venue to enjoy this family friendly production from PAC favourites TaleGate Theatre. Their shows are always full of laughter so we know this will be a lot of fun for the festive season.”

Tickets for Mother Goose are on sale now and are available from the venue's website.
