Beauty and the Beast mixes romance with panto mayhem, brimming with comedy, and modern music including the viral video Baby Shark song, and a bespoke version of Bohemian Rhapsody.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: 'Bookings are up and there are only handfuls of tickets left, so I would urge anyone planning to attend to contact us as soon as possible.'

The show, which also features back projections and special effects, stars young Irish actress Emma Scott as the Beauty and George Caporn as The Beast/Prince Sebastian.

The panto runs until January 1, with shows at 2pm, 6pm, and a 10.30am performance on Christmas Eve.
