Join us for a real ‘Beauty’ of a pantomime.
One of the most popular fairy stories, Beauty & The Beast makes its Anvil Christmas debut to tell a tale as old as time.
An evil sorceress sentences the Prince to live life as a hideous Beast in his enchanted castle. Can Belle teach him the error of his ways and lift the curse forever? Will she see beyond the monster and fall for her captor?
Packed full of larger-than-life characters, catchy songs, side-splitting jokes, sumptuous sets, and plenty of festive fun, we invite you to be our guest this December.
Strictly Come Dancing champion, Joe McFadden stars as The Beast/Prince. Best-known for his roles in Heartbeat and Holby City, Joe is appearing in his first Anvil panto. He is joined by Basil Brush's Mr Stephen Chris Pizzey who returns for more gags and silliness as Louis la Plonk.
EastEnders' Nick Wilton stars as Polly la Plonk, Maria Coyne is Belle, and Michael Quinn is Hugo Pompidou, the cheeky chap trying to win the heart of our dear Belle.
As traditional as mince pies, make The Anvil’s family pantomime part of your Christmas tradition!
