Celebrate Christmas with Jack and the Beanstalk Online, a very special festive screening to watch at home or at the Belgrade.

Written by and starring Coventry’s favourite Dame Iain Lauchlan, alongside the wonderful Craig Hollingsworth and with a special appearance by BBC CWR’s Trish Adudu, this seasonal screening is full of festive fun and magical mayhem.

Life has been turned upside-down in the village of Prickly Bottom. An evil Giant and his horrible henchman Fleshcreep have pinched the enchanted harp that helps keep Prickly Bottom peaceful, safe and prosperous! But Fairy Fluff thinks she’s found a way to save the day.

When poor Jack Trott is forced to sell his beloved cow Daisy, Fairy Fluff makes him a special offer in the form of some magic beans, Waking up the next day, Jack find a mysterious beanstalk growing in his garden and a magical adventure soon begins.

Filmed following the latest government guidelines on social distancing, Jack and the Beanstalk Online is full to brim with slapstick silliness, crazy costumes and lots magical make-believe.

There are two different ways you can experience this unmissable Christmas treat:

  • Watch on selected dates at the Belgrade Theatre, from £11 for adults and £6 for children – click the Watch at the Belgrade button at the top of this page for dates and times. Please note that due to social distancing tickets are limited so make sure you book early!
  • Watch at Home from 1 – 31 Dec, from just £16. You only need to book once to be able view the online panto whenever you like throughout December. If you book to watch at home, an email with details about how to access the screening will be sent to you prior to the event.
  • Like Jack Trott, we’ve fallen on tough times this year so if you’d like to show your support for the Belgrade by spending a few more magic beans to help us out, you can also purchase a Watch at Home ticket for £26.


Due to the way our streaming events are accessed, the best way to buy a ticket as a gift for someone else, is to buy and send a Gift Voucher so they can use it to book their own ticket.

Christmas 2020 will be a bit different for all of us but Jack and the Beanstalk Online is a great way to still catch up with family and friends to enjoy a Christmas treat – whether it’s via a socially distanced visit to the Belgrade or by arranging to all watch at the same time at home with a simultaneous Zoom call!
