Psssst! Have you heard the rumours? The Gawgaw is back prowling for children on Christmas Eve! Now please don't ask why, no one quite knows the reason. Try see him as hard as you might you're still bound to get a fright. Why? Because he lives in the dark where there's never ever any light; but we're pretty sure he doesn't bite, let's get that right. Is he a friend or is he a foe? It's up to you to let us know. 

This Christmas, join us in pitch darkness, for a magical panto with a unique multi-sensory twist! Filled with eccentric characters, familiar tunes, and an over-the-top dame it's the perfect experience for the whole family! 

Open your ears and close your eyes; the Gawgaw is coming.
