Forget the celebrity names and big budget pantos, this is a slice of magic this Christmas” West End Best Friend

Fun, colourful, bright and joyful” Fairypowered


Jack loves his Mum, and his Mum loves Jack. Jack also loves his grub and dreams of food. The extremely greedy Giant loves food too, but doesn’t leave enough for all to share. Join Jack on his fantastical, festive adventure of magical beans, golden harps and towering beanstalks, as he climbs to the land above the clouds to teach the Giant a jolly good lesson.
