The Belgrade’s legendary Christmas pantomime returns with one of the world’s favourite fairytales, Jack and the Beanstalk!

Killingly funny, masterfully directed and inimitably performed by Iain Lauchlan. The Stage

On their farm in Prickly Bottom our hero Jack, his mother Dame Trott, and his brother Simon haven’t a bean to their name! Their friendly cow, Daisy, has gone dry and worse still the village is being destroyed by the evil giant Blunderbore.

His wicked henchman Fleshcreep has stolen the magic harp of Prickly Bottom and kidnapped the beautiful Princess. Join us to see if Jack can save the day, retrieve the harp and win the heart of the Princess.

A performance with boundless energy, fantastic scenery, wonderful costumes and a rather scary but impressive giant. Coventry Telegraph

Featuring spectacular scenery, stupendous costumes, hilarious slapstick and bags of audience participation, Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be a treat for all the family!

Impressive set and production by West End standards, let alone Coventry. Daventry Express

Panto legend Iain Lauchlan returns to play the Dame once again as well as writing and directing the show.
