Pantomime is a joyous British tradition like no other and an unmissable part of every family’s Christmas. A fairy tale with a twist, spun together with hilarious comedy and slapstick, sparkling costumes and foot-tapping songs and dances. You’ll cheer the heroine, boo the evil villain and laugh out loud and sing-a-long with The Queen. York Theatre Royals’ pantomime is internationally-renowned as one of the best in the country and, just like tea at Betty’s and a walk round the City Walls, it’s an unmissable part of your York experience. Every year over 40,000 people enjoy this spectacular show so this Christmas make Sleeping Beauty part of your festive celebrations.
