CHRISTMAS is just around the corner and that can mean only one thing – it is almost time for Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) to come alive with fantastic festive family fun.

‘Santa In Love’, promises to unveil some fun, magical secrets for audiences aged four years and over on Saturday, December, 7 at 2.30pm.

Santa will be available to meet little ones after the show and each child will receive a gift.

On Saturday, December 14, from 2.30pm, PAC brings you the pantomime you have always wished for with Aladdin’ live on stage courtesy of Talegate Theatre.

Aladdin promises to be packed with songs, slapstick, silliness, and all the fairy-tale magic of traditional pantomime for all the family.

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, when our auditorium is filled with audiences of all ages enjoying some fantastic festive family fun.

“Our Christmas stage shows enhance our year-round family theatre offering and really mark the start of the build up to Christmas and the New Year.

Janet added: “But they always prove hugely popular so I would recommend buying tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.”
